The following are just some of the products and services raising the bar for CT scanning.
The CurveBeam HiRise is a multifunctional weight bearing CT system that can scan the entire lower extremities, including the hip and pelvis. The HiRise gantry tilts 90 degrees for ergonomic upper extremity imaging, as well as supine imaging of the knees and feet. The HiRise patient platform, with a diameter of 40 cm, is the largest available in any weight bearing CT system.
For those who need to move fast and expand clinical capabilities -- and would love new equipment -- the uCT 550 Advance offers a new fully configured 80-slice CT in up to 2 weeks with routine maintenance and parts and Software Upgrades for Life™ included.
The HiRise uses cone beam CT technology; trabecular detail is displayed in high-spatial resolution. Standard slice thickness is 0.3mm. The HiRise plugs into a standard wall outlet, requires minimal room shielding and is easy to operate.
