The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has given 510(k) clearance to NeuroLogica’s portable, full body, multi-slice computed tomography (CT) scanner, the BodyTom.

The battery powered BodyTom, with 85cm gantry and 60cm field of view (FOV), can be easily transported from room to room, similar to the widely used portable chest X-ray systems.

BodyTom is DICOM 3.1 compliant and compatible with all PACS, surgical navigation, electronic medical records, planning systems and provide CT images wherever needed in the clinic, ICU, OR and Emergency/Trauma Departments.

NeuroLogica CEO Colin McDonald said BodyTom is lifesaving and its imaging technologies benefits both clinicians and patients.

Mirebalais Hospital Partners in Health chief radiology advisor Jeffrey Mendel said in addition to CereTom CT, BodyTom will greatly expand imaging capabilities in Haiti, improving the diagnosis and treatment of a wide range of medical conditions.
