Sixteen-slice CT system offers advanced applications and features of premium systems at a lower cost
At the 2018 Association for Medical Imaging Management (AHRA) Annual Meeting, July 22-25 in Orlando, Fla., Neusoft Medical Systems USA will introduce its latest computed tomography (CT) innovation, the NeuViz 16 Essence. The NeuViz 16 Essence is a 16-slice CT system designed to elevate routine imaging for exceptional results, ideally suited for U.S. healthcare providers. It has received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 510(k) clearance.
Despite rapid advances in CT technology, the 16-slice CT scanner remains the most commonly used scanner for non-cardiac imaging. The workhorse of diagnostics, a 16-slice scanner typically costs 30-40 percent less than a 64-slice system, with 20-30 percent lower annual service expenses. Meanwhile, reimbursement for non-cardiac imaging is the same whether using a 64- over a 16-slice system.
The NeuViz 16 Essence technology is built with the same ease of use and reliability of the mature NeuViz 16 CT system, plus the recent technical innovations developed for the NeuViz 128 CT platform, including a full complement of advanced applications at no additional cost. Additionally, patient-centered features include a wider bore, optimal gantry tilt and a minimal couch height of 43 cm to provide easy access for all patients. The NeuViz 16 Essence is also fully compliant with XR-29 standards in accordance with the Medical Imaging Technology Alliance (MITA) Smart Dose campaign to advance low-dose imaging technology.
