Article

The Brilliance iCT SP (scalable platform) scanner officially joined the Philips CT portfolio at RSNA 2008.

The Brilliance iCT SP (scalable platform) scanner officially joined the Philips CT portfolio at RSNA 2008. The compact, 128-slice scanner can be sited in a room measuring 365 square feet and can be scaled to deliver 256 slices per rotation if the needs of the facility grow, according to Philips. The new system has the same gantry rotation, 0.27 seconds, as the company's flagship 256-slice scanner and delivers the same 120 kW power. Its Smart Focal Spot x-ray tube technology enhances spatial resolution. The Nano-Panel detector enables large area coverage for coronary artery imaging, lung scanning, and brain perfusion, while the Eclipse DoseWise collimator keeps a lid on dose.
