A little over a week ago, the US Food and Drug Administration gave the green light to GE Healthcare’s new imaging product, the Revolution CT.
Like a typical computed tomography scan machine (more commonly called a “CT scan”), the Revolution uses X-rays to capture cross-section images of a body. But now it does it faster, with lower doses of radiation, and with motion correction—just like you find in your camera. In fact, the company says the Revolution CT can capture a slice in a single heartbeat.
That means that medical professionals can now create vivid images, even with some of their challenging patients—like those with high heart rates, metallic implants, and claustrophobia. GE Healthcare says the technology also offers benefits to sensitive groups like pediatric, trauma, and stroke patients.
