From Which Medical Device

This single-source scanner is suitable for a range of patients.  It offers low dosage control and the sedation and breath hold has a pitch of 1.7 at 23 cm/sec.  

The Definition Edge is ultra-fast, reducing the duration of a scan and providing high quality images for improved patient outcomes during emergency, investigative and post-operative procedures.  

In cardiology, the scanner produces low-contrast images and enables improved bolus timing for TAVI planning.  In oncology, patients receive low-dosage radiation and tumours can be more easily and more quickly identified.
