Analogic is also featuring its new wide-bore integrated CT gantry using Analogic's PowerLink noncontact power transfer system, along with new iterative reconstruction software called LISA (low dose imaging software by Analogic) that can generate images at up to 40% lower radiation dosage, according to the company.
