In January, the FDA cleared Siemens’ MAGNETOM Lumina 3T scanner. The Lumina has a 55-centimeter-by-55-centimeter-by-50-centimeter field of view, and provides the same technology benefits as Altea.
New UltraFlex 18 coils are also available for the Altea, Lumina, Sola and Vida. They come in both a small and large size for imaging the extremities and abdomen and come with positioning aids for the foot and ankle. These provide a great alternative to costly dedicated coils, Farischon said.
For those who need to move fast and expand clinical capabilities -- and would love new equipment -- the uCT 550 Advance offers a new fully configured 80-slice CT in up to 2 weeks with routine maintenance and parts and Software Upgrades for Life™ included.
The company also has new blanket coils called the Contour 24 and Contour 48. The high-density coils adapt flexibly to the patient’s anatomy and body contour.
“The coils also come with SlideConnect technology, which guides the coil into the table connections, simplifying workflow and reducing wear and tear on the pins of the coil,” Farischon said.Back to HCB News
