Hitachi Medical Systems America Inc. said Thursday afternoon it received Food and Drug Administration clearance for its 64-slice Scenaria CT system.

The device combines "the latest dose saving and imaging technologies with unparalleled ergonomic benefits afforded by a slimmer gantry design with wider 75-centimeter aperture and a lateral shifting table," in the words of Mark Silverman, Hitachi's manager of CT marketing.

Hitachi said the device includes Intelli IP Iterative Reconstruction software to allow high-quality scans while delivering a lower radiation dose.
