The LightSpeed VCT is the latest innovation in CT technology. VCT means "Volume CT"...ushering in a new era in CT imaging.
The innovative hallmark of this non-invasive imaging system is the new V-Res™ detector with its ability to deliver wide anatomical coverage and high resolution, simultaneously.
This unprecedented coverage speed allows clinicians to capture whole organs in a second, the heart in 5 beats, or go head to toe in under 10 seconds - faster than any other CT scanner on the market today. With breakthroughs in technology, comes the opportunity for new and dynamically enhanced procedures.
5-Beat Cardiac™ - a comprehensive view of the heart and coronary arteries with submillimeter resolution in 5 seconds. The coverage possible helps reduce beat-to-beat variability resulting in more robust, repeatable procedures, greater vessel visualization and shorter breath holds for sick patients.
Triple RuleOut™ - the ability to help clinicians rule out (or in) the three most life-threatening critical conditions in chest pain in one single gated thorax acquisition - aortic dissection, pulmonary embolism and coronary artery disease.
Stroke WorkUp - the ability to dynamically obtain both anatomical and functional information in a single cine acquisition: to get high resolution clinical data characterizing patient status and management, such as blood volume, blood flow or Mean Transit Time.
Ergonomic Table Design - longer scannable range, flexible patient positioning, higher patient weight capacity, the new VT Patient Positioning System sets the standard for comfort and function.
