CT scan systems are rising in popularity as tools used for diagnosis during illness, but also increasingly for preventative diagnoses. Whole body CT screening, especially, is a process that people are opting for as it offers comprehensive imaging of the body from the neck to the feet. The technology used in CT scans is called X Ray computed tomography, also referred to oftentimes as computerized axial tomography in CAT Scans. Hitachi’s offerings in the CT and CAT scan arena has helped make the process easier and more optimized for medical practises of all sizes.

Supria

The Supria CT system comes with a wide bore 75cm compact foot print. It only requires 3 system modules of gantry, a patient table, and an operation console when purchased as the compact rather than the open option.

Equipped with the best in imaging technology, the Supria allows for high speed scanning-less than 1 second/rot. The imaging process also allows for 3D reconstruction of scanned systems to enable more accurate diagnoses.

In addition to the sophisticated 3D imaging (CORE) technology, the Supria system also comes with technology to help reduce image noise. Moreover, the system also comes equipped with the Intelli IP (Advanced), which is applied to get higher image quality. Easy on the operator, Supria has a 24 inch wide monitor with an intuitive user interface that is fairly easy to use and comprehend. All the information in terms of viewing is centralized and present on one screen as well, optimizing the workflow process in terms of display. Operators also have access to a quick entry mode which requires minimal button pushes for data entry.

Scenaria

The Scenaria offers 0.35s/rot for a full body CT scan. Hitachi’s most advanced and most comprehensive CT scanning option, The Scenaria offers doctors, operators, patients, imaging technicians and more the very best in whole body CT scanning technology.

Supria 64

A more compact option than the Scenaria, the Supria 64 offers high operability with compactness, making it ideal for hospitals and practices. The Supria 64 offers the best whole-body scan for a system of its size and capabilities, with roughly 14 second rotation period to provide a high resolution image in the range of 1,100 mm or more. Also equipped with the Intelli IP for noise reduction, it offers 7 levels of intensity to meet dose reduction requirements and reduce the consequential noise in the images. The system also comes equipped with 500 mm full FOV data acquisition as well as options for motion correction

With different CT solutions available for different practices, Hitachi remains an innovator in the field of CT imaging technology, and will continue to innovate to produce even better solutions.
