“We are literally just scratching the surface of what spectral CT can do. Spectral CT 7500 is a great example of how we’re creating smart solutions and integrated workflows to support our strategy in Precision Diagnosis now and moving forward. We are very honored to be recognized with this accolade from the AuntMinnie editors and thought leaders across the radiology industry,” said Frans Venker, General Manager of CT in Precision Diagnosis at Philips. “At the upcoming RSNA 2021 event, we will spotlight Spectral CT 7500, and our journey which started with IQon Spectral CT at RSNA, 2013. Dual energy CT has been around for a while, but source based Dual Energy solutions, on the market today, suffer from compromises in IQ, Dose and workflow. Those tradeoffs limited the adoption of Dual Energy in clinical practice, despite the proven benefits of multi energy CT. Spectral CT 7500 overcame all of those limitations, enabling spectral insights to be readily available and utilized for every patient and from every scan. Philips is still the only vendor offering Spectral Detector CT, and users of the technology are realizing all the benefits – routinely.”
Westchester Medical Center, the flagship of the Westchester Medical Center Health Network (WMCHealth) is the second hospital in the United States to have the new Philips Spectral CT 7500, acquired through a multi-year technology and services partnership with Philips. Medical imaging specialists at Westchester Medical Center can now capture high quality scans with more information than conventional CT imaging to help improve disease identification and possibly decrease the need for rescans, allowing physicians to move beyond where a suspicious finding is located, to characterizing what it is.
“Our patients are the true beneficiaries of this technology as the clarity and quality of the medical images generated by the Spectral CT 7500 help our physicians characterize disease quickly with enhances confidence than with conventional CT scanning,” said Zvi Lefkowitz, MD, Director, Department of Radiology for Westchester Medical Center. “The physical design of the Spectral CT 7500 has benefits as well as its larger dimensions affords our clinical specialists more space to perform biopsies, ablations and other procedures, and the design makes for a more comfortable imaging environment for bariatric patients.”
Aunt Minnie editors will present the Best New Radiology Device Award for Spectral CT 7500 to Philips during the upcoming 2021 Radiological Society of North America Annual Meeting (RSNA 2021), in Chicago, USA, in the Philips Booth (#6730) on Monday, Nov. 29. Join Philips at RSNA 2021 where the company will spotlight its latest portfolio of radiology workflow solutions and smart connected imaging systems to increase efficiency and diagnostic confidence in precision care and treatment.
