Manufacturer GE Healthcare has released its new Revolution CT scanner, which provides 4D images and is intended for use by physicians in every clinical specialty. According to GE, the Revolution is the first CT scanner capable of displaying animated 4D models of organs, blood vessels, soft tissues, muscles, vascular structures, and bones in real time. The company reports that the Revolution CT takes only a fraction of a second to scan any organ in the body, and provides answers from just one CT exam.
According to the GE Healthcare website, the Revolution CT uses the company’s Smart Dose Technologies, which contribute to a more accurate diagnosis and lower radiation exposure for patients across routine and advanced exams, including dynamic acquisitions for perfusion and 4D studies. The Revolution CT produces 4D images with a dose of medical radiation that is 82% lower than other CT scanners.
The company announcement says that 4D medical imaging follows the process of acquiring multiple 3D images over time. Based on its organ coverage, image quality, and speed, the Revolution CT system is said to enable clinicians to diagnose more patients with erratic or high heartbeats, and provide pediatric patients with sedation-free and low-dose scanning capabilities, among other clinical benefits.
