In computed tomography, or CT in short, X ray beam rotates around an object to produce multiple projections. The acquired data will be processed by computer to create multiple cross-sectional images. It enables viewing of the internal structures of different body parts. It is one of the most widely used cross-sectional imaging techniques.
HKAI is using Siemens SOMATOM Drive. It is one of the highest-end models on the market, incorporated with dual source and the latest technology. Only 3 machines are available in Hong Kong.
Our dual source CT scanner has two sets of x-ray tubes and detectors that can emit X Ray and acquire data at the same time. In contrast to the conventional single source CT, dual source CT can acquire images twice faster.
The novel technologies in SOMATOM Drive further improve precision, efficiency and patient safety without compromising image quality. The scanner has unique features of superfast scanning time to minimize breathing and motion artifacts, lower radiation dose, and lesser contrast media requirement. Thus, patient experience can be improved. It also has various advanced clinical applications such as cardiovascular imaging, functional imaging, pediatric and elderly imaging.
