Hitachi Medical Systems America has announced FDA clearance to market its Supria 16-slice CT system. The new Supria 16 features a compact design and provides Smart-Dose compliant (XR-29) lower dose patient safety capabilities.
Supria 16 combines the latest dose saving technologies in a compact design with enhanced patient access features to comfortably accommodate a wide range of patient sizes, including bariatric patients. Supria 16 can be sited in a scan room as small as 200 sq. ft.
"Supria demonstrates Hitachi's continuing commitment to provide superior product value by combining the latest imaging technologies in a design that while compact, still affords the premium patient accommodation features of more expensive systems including a 75cm gantry aperture, standard 1.8 meter scannable range table with 500 lb. weight capacity," said Mr Mark Silverman, director of CT Marketing.
"The Supria provides a strong value-based solution for CT providers needing to replace older higher-dose ≤16-slice CT Systems with a new lower-dose Smart Dose compliant (XR-29) system. The dose reduction features included standard with Supria actually surpass the XR-29 Standard," said Mr Sheldon Schaffer, VP and general manager MR/CT.
