The recent purchase and installation purchase and installation of the GE Revolution CT System makes Miami’s West Kendall Baptist Hospital the first in the world to leverage the technology. The move came after a 6-month evaluation of the CT scanner at the hospital.

“The Revolution CT exceeded our expectations during the trial, and we are pleased to add this technology permanently to our comprehensive diagnostic imaging arsenal,” said Ricardo Cury, MD, chairman of radiology and director of cardiac imaging at Baptist Health South Florida. Cury was the principal investigator of the study.

Featuring a convergence of whole-organ coverage, image quality, and speed, the Revolution enables clinicians to diagnose more patients with erratic or high heartbeats and to provide pediatric patients with sedation-free and low-dose scanning capabilities, among other clinical advances.
