Philips Unveils 16-Slice CT, Addresses Cost Concerns
November 26, 2008 - Seen for the first time in North America, the MX 16-slice CT will be unveiled at this year’s RSNA.
Pending 510(k) clearance, the MX series is a family of CT scanners that reportedly have a loyal customer following in other parts of the world. This 16-slice system is designed for those customers who want to replace their current scanner or add a second system, but have purchasing cost concerns stemming from economic pressures.
The 16-slice is a high-performing scanner, capable of executing all routine applications, including exams like CT angiography (CTA), where a 16-slice scanner is typically required. It is also ideal for those clinicians who may want to add a second system to expand their clinical services in the areas of CTA and virtual colonoscopy.
