Comprised of our proprietary CT scintillator material, the Gemstone is the first new detector material in 20 years. Equivalent performances were observed in the comparison between GSI 65 keV monochromatic images and images from a regular abdomen scan protocol.

Leading edge clarity requires innovation throughout the image chain — and across every variable of image development. Room construction should be complete and all necessary permits granted System installation, calibration and performance testing is complete Open house visits and other staff training are not scheduled Instruction on ancillary equipment is completed before system training Department routine is organized to minimize interruptions Physicians and other personnel who may need to be present at times during the training are notified Imaging accessories, archive media and other supplies are available Patient exams are scheduled according to the training agenda Note: Prerequisites This course has no prerequisite requirements.

Study the Operator’s Manual delivered with your system Ensure familiarity with relevant areas of technology and terminology through reading current literature Have their normal duties delegated for the training period. As a result, clinicians can perform CT perfusion in a single scan, with a single contrast injection. A reconstruction technology that may enable reduction in pixel noise standard deviation.

The test involved maintaining constant pixel standard deviation as the mA was reduced at kV. You and your patients continue to demand lower dose — but not at the expense of diagnostic image quality.


In addition, a formula describing the dependency of HU in iodine enhanced area on GSI monochromatic energies and iodine concentrations was provided and the theoretical values were compared with the measured results.

Discovery CT750 HD FREEdom Edition

Its exclusive garnet structure enables high-definition imaging during sub-second scanning and fast kV switching. We’re here to help you keep your CT system up and running. We know that for every piece of CT equipment in your facility, there are patients with expectations about having their c7t50 done reliably and on schedule.

GSI monochromatic images at 65 keV demonstrated the lowest noise level among GSI images of different monochromatic energies and showed very similar noise magnitude and noise power distribution as compared to the regular protocol images.

This computation may dramatically reduce the amount of dose needed to acquire a high-performance image. Veo Imaging under 1mSv with profound clarity. Additional training days are suggested to train Physicians.

Discovery CT750 HD 128 Slice

GE Healthcare Educators and Computed Tomography Clinical Application Specialists are committed to helping you provide better patient care on a daily basis through our high performance education programs.

The result is more than mm of high-resolution volume coverage, equivalent to a slice image, and the ability to perform 4D-CTA studies. Their noise characteristics were studied through noise power spectra, and their low contrast detectability was compared via contrast-to-noise ratio.

Planning for this training requires the use of certain content and instructional strategies. Volume Helical Shuttle is a continuous bi-directional scan mode that extends z-coverage and improves temporal sampling.

Smart Dose with kV Assist provides automated kV and mA recommendations allowing users to tailor protocols to each patient, clinical indication and each scan area. At the same time, significant dose reduction capabilities are now available, opening up new possibilities for challenging cases and sensitive patients.

Leading-edge technology throughout the image chain. IVA – direzione. The observed dependency of HU on keV and iodine concentration levels agreed with the expectation from x-ray attenuations.


Objective characterization of GE discovery CT HD scanner: gemstone spectral imaging mode.

This course is designed for CT Technologists. Policlinico di Monza SpA Sede legale: Significantly lower doses are also given during head and face scans and at the same time greater profile clarity and definition are achieved even ud the case of injuries of not more than 3mm diameter.

This breakthrough is changing the way physicians use CT imaging, delivering a combination of high-performance images and low dose that was previously unthinkable. We advise that the personnel selected should fulfill the following criteria: By the end of the program, Technologists who attend the complete training agenda will be able to use the system features and perform discoveery to intermediate procedures as described in the skill inventory included in the TiP training package.

A REA di Novara n. CE Considerations for Onsite Training Continuing Education credit may be earned by Technologists who complete the training curriculums as presented by the Applications Specialist.

Greater coverage makes advanced techniques possible The Discovery CT HD has features that enable the performance of advanced diagnostic techniques. Instruction is delivered by a GE CT Applications Specialist at the customer facility and focuses on system operation and patient procedures. And with high-definition image quality across yd — the Discovery CT HD can reach any part of the body of virtually any patient, and perform both generalized and specialized clinical applications, including:.

It is indeed a step forward in determining whether a cancer is benign or malignant cancer. Before training, selected personnel should: Policlinico di Monza, together with three other hospitals in France and in the USA, is a leader in terms of advanced technology.
