Spectral-Detector CT has made a significant mark in imaging across all patient populations from Pediatric to Bariatric and has made unexpected and incidental findings, suboptimal contrast enhancement, blooming artifacts (calcified plaques, stents, etc.), Low eGFR and Metal implant complexities challenges of the past.

This is an Expert Forum Webinar with Dr. Dianna Bardo and Dr. Gopal Punjabi who will share their experience utilizing Spectral-Detector CT and its clinical support tools to overcome the unique complexities and challenges that come when imaging pediatric and bariatric patients. They will discuss their path in introducing this technology to their departments, and give examples of how it has helped them overcome imaging and diagnostic challenges with these unique patient types such as reducing contrast and radiation dose, eliminate repeat scans, subsequent imaging and follow up scans, optimize and standardize workflow, and enhance patient and staff experience.  Join us and learn how you can apply similar results to your own departments.

About Philips Spectral CT 7500

This webinar is sponsored by Philips Healthcare who developed the world's first and only detector-based spectral technology and is continuing to make investments in the development of the latest spectral innovations. With detector-based spectral, you acquire multiple layers of data — conventional and spectral- within a single exposure and without special scan modes, meaning spectral is on 100% of the time and delivers results for improved tissue characterization and visualization for every patient. Learn More.
  • Spectral results 100% of the time makes each scan work harder for you, helping guide the way to precision diagnosis.
  • Simplified workflow helps you to achieve a confident diagnosis.
  • Reduces time to diagnosis by 34% and follow up scans by 25%. *
  • Sets the new standard in cardiac care, emergency radiology, oncology, and interventional and radiation oncology.
  • Increases the sensitivity from 77 to 89%, and Specificity for exclusion of the malignancy of the cysts from 30 to 96%, while simultaneously reducing the need for additional follow-up imaging. **
  • 50keV Spectral images provide a 50% reduction in contrast dose. ***
Discover the difference that spectral-detector CT can make. Now you can easily have both the “where things are” of conventional CT combined with the “what things are” revealed by spectral-detector data.

The Spectral CT 7500 is the latest innovation in Philips Spectral-Detector technology which features an 80cm bore, 8cm detector, dual gantry touch-panel control, a high performance patient table, and spectral results 100% of the time. To learn more click here.
