RaySafe helps you avoid unnecessary radiation

RaySafe solutions are designed to minimize the need for user interaction, bringing unprecedented simplicity & usability to the X-ray room. We're committed to establishing a radiation safety culture wherever technicians & medical staff encounter radiation.



Its UHR detector has been designed to provide more than double the image resolution of conventional CT technology. The system can also image anatomy as small as 150 microns.

The detector channels are only 0.25 millimeters thick and significant improvements have been made to scintillator quantum efficiency, detector circuitry and other data acquisition system components. All of those factors provide better dose efficiency.

The Aquilion Precision is also equipped with the company’s new automated Model-Based Iterative Reconstruction (MBIR) technology, which reduces noise and maintains resolution. This is the first MBIR optimized for UHR CT.
