Use of VISIUS iCT does not require patient transport or need for floor-mounted rails like other CT systems which opens up valuable OR space and provides unimpeded movement of surgical equipment. The surgical team can maintain familiar surgical protocols, workflow and infection control procedures. Portable CT systems on the market deliver lesser image quality. The VISIUS iCT also offers the longest scanner travel range on the market today.
Minimizing radiation dose is critical. VISIUS iCT features a suite of software applications such as 3D volume rendering to aid in surgical planning and dose reduction algorithms which consider a patient's unique characteristics and imaging target to maximize image quality and minimize dose. The system software also offers state-of-the art dose tools like iterative reconstruction and real-time dose (kV and mAs) modulation.
