Shandong Tumor Hospital and Institute recently marked a milestone by receiving the 300th shipment. 

“As an oncology hospital, we were seeking a solution that would provide high quality, sharp images with low dose and we found that with Brilliance iCT,” said Wenwu Li, M.D., chief of radiology at Shandong Tumor Hospital & Institute. “The technology is well-suited to support accurate staging for surgery and liver analysis, all vital in our efforts to best serve our patients.”   

The newest software version on the iCT, released in April, provides users new ways of managing dose without sacrificing image quality. The version also includes iDose4, Philips latest iterative reconstruction technique.
