CT Scan Unit

Philips Brilliance Big Bore 16 Slice CT Scan The Philips Brilliance Big-Bore 16 Slice CT Scanner boasts an 85cm large bore and 60cm true scan field-of-view. This configuration is ideal for the emergency room, interventional exams, and bariatric/ general radiology imaging where speed, access, and throughput are crucial. The Philips Brilliance Big-Bore represents the ideal wide-bore as well as a wide range of clinical applications. Features and Benefits 85cm bore size to accommodate patients in immobilization devices or with bulky patient monitoring devices. 60cm true Scan Field of View (SFOV) to include all patient skin surface; no compromise when using the scan for radiation dose calculations. 16-slice per revolution with 2.4cm coverage allows you to cover larger areas in the fastest time. Oncology specific tools to increase throughput i.e. full length cursor, oncology protocols. CT L.O.C. (Localization On the Console) increases workflow. Respiratory correlated gating with connectivity to third-party gating devices. Patient couch assembly to meet accuracy demands of oncology departments.
