Marconi’s 16-slice CT produces first images

The first tangible results of the much-vaunted 16-slice generation of CT scanners have appeared in a Marconi engineering lab. The company’s Infinite Detector, showcased at the last RSNA meeting as an integral part of a future Mx8000 multislice CT scanner, has generated 16-slice images. The scanner covers more than 4 cm of patient anatomy in one second with submillimeter isotropic accuracy. Thin-slice large-volume coverage is more than 12 times faster than the current Mx8000 quad-slice CT scanner. The images were acquired in both axial and spiral modes utilizing cone-beam algorithms. Marconi’s reconstruction methods eliminate cone-beam artifacts.
