Hitachi Medical Systems America Inc. announced the first Scenaria CT scanner has been installed in North America and is available for clinical use at Radiology Imaging Associates in Prince Frederick, Maryland.
The new Hitachi SCENARIA 64-slice CT responds to today’s challenge to simultaneously provide excellent image quality across a wide range of routine and advanced applications with the most sophisticated dose reduction* technologies and in an ergonomic package that accommodates the patient comfortably. “We are very excited about our relationship with Radiology Imaging Associates and are proud to see our first installation in a facility dedicated to excellence” said Sheldon Schaffer, Vice President and General Manager, MRI & CT.
SCENARIA includes a comprehensive package of enhanced dose reduction and awareness features highlighted by Intelli IP™ Iterative Processing, Intelli EC™ 3D automatic exposure control and Dose Check that notifies the operator before scanning if a scan protocol selected will result in a patient dose higher than reference levels. With the slimmest 64-slice gantry and a more compact footprint, SCENARIA is an ideal upgrade from an older CT.
