CAT Scan

Increased speed, lower radiation dose and improved accuracy for scanning pediatric and adult patients.

The LightSpeed 16 CT, expands Multi-slice CT Scanning technology from eight to 16 slices per rotation. LightSpeed 16 incorporates breakthrough innovations that deliver speed with sub-millimeter resolution, and effective dose optimization to push clinical applications to new levels.

GE’s exclusive ‘Color Coding for Kids’ makes it easy for imaging centers to comply with guidelines regarding scanning pediatric patients. Based on the Broselow-Luten Pediatric System to facilitate emergency care and reduce medical errors, LightSpeed 16 pediatric scan protocols are color-coded according to each child’s weight and size.

This helps eliminate guesswork and reduces radiation dose errors, while allowing technologists to spend more time with the each pediatric patient.
