Instruction is delivered by a GE CT Applications Specialist at the customer facility and focuses on system operation and patient procedures.

With Discovery CT discoveru only receive 0. Before training, selected personnel should:. GE’s dedicated Field Service team and specialized online Engineers make it their mission to transform essential services into extraordinary outcomes.

Discovery CT HD

Policlinico di Monza, together with three other hospitals in France and in the USA, is a leader in terms of advanced technology. Noise measured as Pixel Noise Standard Deviation.

The ASiR reconstruction algorithm may allow for reduced mA in the acquisition of diagnostic images, thereby reducing the dose required 1. Discovery CT high-definition images and drastically reduced radiation dose Only four hospitals in the world have Discovery CT. Significantly lower doses are also given during head and face scans and at the same time greater profile clarity and definition are achieved even in the case of injuries of not more than 3mm diameter.

In clinical practice, the use of ASiR may reduce CT patient dose depending on the clinical task, patient size, anatomical location and clinical practice.

The observed dependency of HU on keV and iodine concentration levels agreed with the expectation from x-ray attenuations.

Greater coverage makes advanced techniques possible The Discovery CT HD has features that enable the performance of advanced diagnostic techniques. Room construction should be complete and all necessary permits granted System installation, calibration and performance testing is complete Open house visits and other staff training are not scheduled Instruction on ancillary equipment is completed before system training Department routine is organized dlscovery minimize interruptions Physicians and other personnel discovert may need to be present at times during the training are notified Imaging accessories, archive media and other supplies are available Patient exams are scheduled according to the training dizcovery Note: Leading-edge technology throughout the image disovery.


Lower noise and higher resolution can be achieved within a single image. The result is more than mm disckvery high-resolution volume coverage, equivalent to a slice disvovery, and the ability to perform 4D-CTA studies.

Discovery CT750 HD FREEdom Edition

A consultation with a radiologist and a physicist should be made to determine the appropriate dose to obtain diagnostic diwcovery quality for the particular clinical task. Prerequisites This course has no prerequisite requirements. Smart Dose with kV Assist provides automated kV and mA recommendations allowing users to tailor protocols to each patient, clinical indication and each scan area.

Additional training days are suggested to train Physicians.

This breakthrough is changing the way physicians use CT imaging, delivering a combination of high-performance images and low dose that was previously unthinkable. ASiR dose reduction was measured on a standard 20cm water phantom.

VEO is a new software technology that has enabled a real breakthrough in low-dose imaging. IVA – direzione.

The resolving power of both diwcovery was characterized in terms of modulation transfer functions and high contrast resolution bar readings. The Applications training is designed to enhance learning, prepare the Technologists to provide the best patient care possible and to achieve particular learning outcomes or objectives.

At the same time, significant dose reduction capabilities are now disxovery, opening up new possibilities for challenging cases and sensitive patients. The test involved maintaining constant pixel standard deviation as the mA was reduced at kV. News dal Gruppo La protesi d’anca perfetta?

And with high-definition image quality across discogery — the Discovery CT HD can reach any duscovery of the body of virtually any patient, and perform both generalized and specialized clinical applications, including:.

CE Considerations for Onsite Training Continuing Education credit may be earned by Technologists who complete the training curriculums as presented by the Applications Specialist. MAR is a correction technology that addresses the challenges posed by metal artifacts, such as metal prostheses and enables clinicians to clearly yd between tumors and healthy tissues.

As a result, clinicians can perform CT perfusion in a single scan, with a single contrast injection. Equivalent performances were observed in the comparison between GSI 65 keV monochromatic images and images from a regular abdomen scan protocol. Comprised of our proprietary CT scintillator material, the Gemstone is the first new detector material in 20 years. A reconstruction technology that may enable reduction in pixel noise standard deviation.

Leading edge clarity requires innovation throughout the image chain — and across every variable of image development. If for any reason your department is not completely ready, please do not hesitate to reschedule training.

A REA di Novara n. Its exclusive garnet structure enables high-definition imaging during sub-second scanning and fast disckvery switching. Spectral Imaging See the broader spectrum of possibilities with the revolutionary Gemstone Spectral Imaging feature.

Comprehensive preparation for the training program is essential to its success.
