Philips accelerates plans to install Brilliance iCT around the world

Philips Medical Systems : 14 May, 2008  (Company News)
Philips is to accelerate its original delivery plans for its Brilliance iCT for early 2009 and now expects a total of 10 customer installations to be completed by summer and to have 50 units installed by the end of 2008.
Philips Brilliance iCT is currently installed at five leading healthcare facilities across the globe.

“Image quality, coverage and speed of the Philips Brilliance iCT is excellent, improving visualization and clinical insights across a wide range of exams,” stated Dr Jonas Rydberg, medical director, department of Radiology, Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis, USA. “The system goes beyond just head and cardiac imaging to provide a dynamic CT scanner for imaging all areas of the body.”

The Brilliance iCT is now installed at the following institutions worldwide:

MetroHealth Medical Center, Cleveland, Ohio, USA.

Methodist Hospital, Indianapolis, Indiana, USA.

Carmel Medical Center, Haifa, Israel.

Washington Hospital Center, Washington, DC, USA.

Lenox Hill Hospital , New York, New York, USA.

As these sites begin to utilise the robust features and capabilities of Brilliance iCT with Essence technology, customers tout the system’s ability to provide greater dimension and depth across a range of clinical areas such as whole brain perfusion, cardiac CT with Step and Shoot technology that images the heart in two beats while reducing dose, head and neck angiography, full field of view lung studies, virtual colonoscopy and abdominal and pelvic imaging. Brilliance iCT with Essence technology offers an impressive combination of speed, power and coverage to improve image quality while incorporating the latest dose reduction technology. Overall patient experience is improved through shorter scan times.

In addition to the 256 slice intelligent Brilliance iCT, the Brilliance 64-channel configuration is also designed with Essence technology. Proprietary to Philips, Essence technology brings advances to the X-ray tube, detector system, and reconstruction engine while offering a scalable platform to enhance image quality and dose efficiencies.

“With Brilliance iCT, the superb image quality aids our clinicians in the diagnosis of complicated health conditions,” said Dr Nathan Peled, head department of radiology of Carmel Medical Center in Haifa, Israel. “The system has delivered increased rotation speeds and improved image quality and clinical performance for diagnostic confidence in routine and advanced radiological imaging.”
