Philips CT 3500
Philips has launched a new high-throughput CT system targeting the needs of routine radiology and high-volume screening programs. Powered by AI, the CT 3500 scanner includes a range of image-reconstruction and workflow-enhancing features that automate time-consuming steps for delivering faster, more efficient exams.

“Increased financial pressures, chronic staff shortages, and escalating patient demand are driving radiology departments to do everything they can to maximize throughput, to guarantee equipment uptime, and to avoid repeat scans,” said Frans Venker, general manager for CT at Philips. “Today, many radiology departments scan hundreds of patients a day. We’ve engineered the Philips CT 3500 to reduce the pain points that these high-volume departments face by developing a versatile, reliable, high-throughput imaging solution.”

The CT 3500 features Philips’ latest AI-powered CT Smart Workflow to automate the scanning process.

New Fully Configured 80-slice CT in 2 weeks with Software Upgrades for Life

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.


  • Precise Position uses a camera to automatically determine patient orientation, improving positioning accuracy by 50% while reducing patient positioning time by up to 23%, according to Philips.
  • Precise Planning automatically determines the area to be scanned and the appropriate Exam Card based on the patient’s anatomy. This provides fast exam preparation and can improve inter-operator consistency. Precise Intervention can offer automated setup and treatment guidance for tissue biopsies and other needle-based interventions.
  • Precise Image AI-based reconstruction is designed to deliver the high image quality needed by radiologists to make a precise diagnosis. Precise Image allows radiology departments to simultaneously achieve up to 60% improved low-contrast detectability, 85% lower noise, and 80% lower radiation dose on non-pediatric patients. All reference protocols are reconstructed in under one minute.

To ensure performance reliability, the CT 3500 is built on Philips’ vMRC tube and tracks critical performance metrics with internal and external proactive monitoring sensors that allow Philips service engineers to intervene prior to any potential impact on CT operations.
