Stanford 2008 video - GE unveils ultrapremium CT

May 15, 2008


 



The new LightSpeed CT750 HD from GE Healthcare promises a 33% contrast improvement in the body and 47% in the heart, while cutting dose in the body by as much as half. The most significant change, however, may come from the product's ability to acquire data at more than 101 different energy levels, using an approach GE calls spectral imaging. Dominic Smith, GE's general manager of molecular imaging and CT marketing and advanced applications, describes this new capability. Greg Freiherr has the story.
