  • SUREkV: Provides automated kV selection based on patient size;
  • Organ Effective Modulation: Delivers safer exams for both patients and providers by limiting dose to radiosensitive organs and during helical scanning and CT fluoroscopy procedures;
  • Contrast Management: Improves workflow and safety by standardizing contrast protocols and automatically tracking volume of contrast used during an exam; and
  • Power Save Mode: Sleep mode option decreases energy consumption when CT system is not in use.
