For the first time, T-class with syngo TimCT continuously scans patients
from head to toe as it does in Computed Tomography. During the examination, the
table moves continuously through the magnet. First and foremost, syngo TimCT
improves the workflow. Prior to this technology, pelvic/leg angiography, for
example, was performed step-by-step. This required more time than continuous
table movement. Depending on the patient's symptoms, examinations need to be
performed of various locations in the body. The greater the number of individual
work steps, the more intricate and error-prone the examination. But syngo TimCT
reduces the number of work steps for a pelvic/leg angiography by 50 percent.
This saves time and also reduces costs while increasing diagnostic safety. At
the same time syngo TimCT improves the image quality as the body region just
being scanned is in the center of the magnet. Here the measurement results
produce the highest level of quality.
This will be a nice addition to our imaging. MRIs give excellent imaging of certain organs, but are much longer than CTs. They are also more difficult to read (for me at least) due to the multiple series of images that are made.
