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.

Prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among men. Predictions suggest that the incidence of prostate cancer could double by 2040, with up to 50% of current cases being identified at advanced stages (III-IV). The Pi technology focuses on automating time-consuming diagnostic processes and improving the accuracy of detecting clinically significant prostate cancer.

Dr. Antony Rix, co-founder and CEO of Lucida Medical, noted that recent studies have validated the expert-level performance of Pi across various healthcare environments and MR systems. "We're excited to bring Pi to more healthcare institutions across the U.K. and Europe, assisting clinical teams in delivering superior diagnostic and treatment services," Rix commented.
