Hitachi CT Scanner Features Advanced Dose-Reduction Technologies

 

April 19, 2011

Hitachi’s new Scenaria 64-slice CT scanner is designed to be ergonomic and increase patient comfort while also delivering sophisticated dose-reduction technologies.

It includes a comprehensive package of enhanced dose reduction and awareness features highlighted by Intelli IP Iterative Reconstruction, Intelli EC 3D automatic exposure control and Dose Check that notifies the operator before scanning if a scan protocol selected will result in a patient dose higher than reference levels. With the slimmest 64-slice gantry and a more compact footprint, it is an ideal upgrade from an older CT.

The scanner also comes in the Scenaria 128 configuration, offering 256-slice imaging.
