Buyer's Guide Update: CT -- New-generation scanners spark interest

Dear Buyer's Guide Update Member,

It's hard to believe now, but at one point in the not-too-distant past, imaging industry pundits were sounding the death knell for CT. The modality would be eclipsed by the hot new kid on the block -- MRI -- which offered nearly the same functionality as CT but without the radiation dose.

Those predictions never came to pass, of course. Spiral and then multislice scanning have revitalized CT and driven it into some areas, like cardiac imaging, where MRI still trails. And now, CT is entering the next phase of its development with a new generation of multislice scanners that would have impressed even the technology's inventor, Sir Godfrey Hounsfield.

If you're looking for a new superpremium CT scanner, the new systems on the market offer a wide range of features, from a system that acquires 16 cm of data per gantry rotation to one that focuses on higher image resolution and lower noise. One model offers extremely high temporal resolution, while another offers a mix of speed and spatial resolution.

Whatever your preference, you're sure to find it in AuntMinnie's Buyer's Guide. Check out the Buyer's Guide CT categories highlighted in this edition:
