Brilliance CT - 16-slice configuration
When it comes to performing routine applications, the Brilliance CT 16-slice configuration puts your institution ahead of the curve. Besides providing high confidence during routine studies, the 16-slice configuration provides a greater volume of coverage, enabling users to perform advanced motion-sensitive applications such as pulmonary and short breath-hold cardiac studies. The 16-slice configuration provides users with best-in-class scan times of 0.4 sec full gantry rotation as well as multi-cycle reconstruction MaxCycleTM to achieve temporal resolution as low as 53 msec. Brilliance 16-slice also empowers clinicians with unparalleled cardiac imaging, including calcium scoring as well as retrospective and prospective gating.
Several Philips-exclusive features make it the ideal system for routine applications:
8.0 M.H.U. MRC X-ray tube - provides necessary heat capacity required for longer scan times, allowing for thin slice imaging.
Spiral Auto Start allows you to monitor the contrast injection and initiate and stop scans without leaving the scan room.
DoseRightTM offers both prospective and dynamic exposure controls to ensure lowest dose with constant image quality.
The Brilliance CT 16 Power configuration builds on Philips experience with the 16-slice platform by incorporating higher performance technologies throughout, including Philips legendary MRC tube.
Thanks to these technologies, the speed of the Brilliance 16 Power configuration impacts everyday workflow and increases patient throughput. For instance, a study containing 1,000 images can be reconstructed in 25 seconds, 10 times faster than with other systems.
This additional horsepower makes the Brilliance 16 Power configuration ideal for situations where speed and throughput are especially critical, such as trauma. High volume, high demand sites also benefit from the powerful standard features that ensure you perform well all the time.
