The FDA has given 510(k) clearance for Marconi Medical Systems to market its latest version of the Acqsim CT simulation scanner with a larger bore and a larger field-of-view.

The Acqsim scanner has an 85-cm bore, compared with 70 cm for earlier versions. It also features a 60-cm display field-of-view, up from 48 cm, along with laser positioning lights and oncology-specific scanner protocols and controls.

Marconi says the new scanner simplifies treatment planning for difficult cases such as breast tumors, Hodgkin’s lymphoma, and large patients. The company said it has more than 50 customers interested in the simulator.
