BCH Installs Innovative CT System
To make CT exams as fast, safe and accurate as possible for patients, Boone County Hospital (BCH) has installed the AquilionTM PRIME CT system from Toshiba. The new CT system provides faster exams at as low as reasonably achievable doses, while producing high-quality images required for accurate diagnoses.
“The speed of the CT enables our clinicians to obtain critical patient information for enhanced diagnoses faster than before,” explains Craig Freeman, BCH Radiology Director. “The design of the Aquilion PRIME allows us to successfully image a range of patients, from pediatric to bariatric, to further improve patient safety and comfort in our community.”
The CTs large bore opening offers a more spacious feeling for patients, while a higher table weight limit expands the range of patients who can be imaged. In addition, it comes standard with industry-leading dose-reduction software.
“The new CT is another example of our commitment to providing the best in scans for our patients,” says Craig.
If you need to have a CT scan, ask your physician to refer you to Boone County Hospital.
