Computer tomography systemPhilips Medical Systems
The Philips CT (computed tomography) Brilliance Family of scanners produce a cross-sectional image of a patient's anatomy. They're invaluable tools that help the clinician to rule out or confirm the presence of certain diseases. Patients requiring a CT scan will benefit from the new scanners because of the ease with which patients can be set up on the table, the sub-millimetre detail and the unmatched speed with which the scanner operates. This is particularly beneficial in trauma cases for example, where more rapid assessment and decision-making can mean the difference between life and death. All CT scanners use X-rays, but the new Brilliance scanners give a significantly lower dose to the patient than most, while still producing exceptional images. Also, the new Brilliance scanners sturdy table design can handle patients up to 440 lbs.
