GE 64 Slice CT Scanner
False Creek Diagnostic Centre
The LightSpeed VCT is the latest innovation in CT technology. VCT means “Volume CT“ ushering in a new era in CT imaging. The innovative hallmark of this non-invasive imaging system is the new V-Res detector with its ability to deliver wide anatomical coverage and high resolution, simultaneously. This unprecedented coverage speed allows clinicians to capture whole organs in a second, the heart in 5 beats or go head to toe in under 10 seconds — faster than any other CT scanner on the market today. Specifically, the LightSpeed VCT covers 4cm of patient anatomy per rotation, gathering 64 slices at 0.625mm (about the thickness of a credit card). Gantry rotation speed is < 375 milli-seconds…or approximately 2.5 to 3 rotations per second.
