GE Healthcare is set to present some of its latest computed tomography (CT) innovations that provide dose-reducing options to customers to help ensure better diagnoses

GE Healthcare‘s ASiR (adaptive statistical iterative reconstruction) low dose reconstruction technology, available on the GE Discovery CT750 HD and LightSpeed VCT, can reduce dose by up to 40-50% while maintaining image quality and can be implemented as a cost-effective upgrade for existing GE LightSpeed VCT customers.

GE Healthcare said that the technology can be used on both helical and axial scans to reduce dose and maintain image quality for patients of all ages.

ASiR, in concert with GE’s SnapShot Pulse technology, further helps physicians to reduce dose cardiac imaging by more than 83%.

Saint Francis Hospital Cardiovascular & Thoracic Radiology director Richard Kane said that the ASiR images are sharp with low the noise level and added that this is very important, considering the significant dose savings that can be achieved with it.

GE Healthcare is showcasing its latest CT innovations at the 96th annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) in Chicago.
