GE Lightspeed16TM CT Scanner
The newest Lightspeed product expands multi-slice CT scanning technology from 8 to 16 slices per rotation. Lightspeed16TM incorporates breakthrough innovations that deliver speed with sub-millimeter resolution and effective dose optimization to push clinical applications to new levels.
Engineered specifically for the demanding requirements of sub-second CT scanning, the GE Lightspeed16TM provides faster and thinner slices of images and improves 3D and reformatted 2D resolution. This new frontier in imaging allows for superb sub-millimeter isotropic resolution that facilitates imaging of small tortuous vessels, fine bony structures and coronary arteries.
In CT scanning, image quality is often improved at the expense of higher radiation dose to the patient. However, the Lightspeed16TM is designed to offer stellar images at a minimum patient dose.
