X-CARE allows to reduce direct X-ray exposure for the most dose-sensitive body regions, e.g. the breasts, thyroid gland or eye lens through partial scanning. It protects these areas from direct X-ray exposure by lowering the tube current for a certain range of projections. It automatically adjusts the tube current for the the remaining projections to prevent deteriorating image quality.
Features & Benefits
- Reduced sensitive-area exposure up to 40% without loss of image quality.
