The pioneering eStart feature gently warms up the tube after extended periods of non-use. That may be every morning for high-throughput facilities, or prior to each scan in smaller hospitals. This reduces deterioration associated with cold starts, extending the tube’s lifespan. For urgent cases, for example in traumatology, it is of course possible to start the scan without eStart – saving time where it counts.
The easy-to-use eMode enables effective and patient-friendly operation by striking the right balance between dose, image quality, and efficiency. Once the user has repared a scan protocol and entered all required information, eMode analyzes the parameters in real time and instantly fine-tunes the scan. This ensures that the System is not operated at peak or system limit values, reducing wear and tear of all moveable parts while maximizing image quality.
eSleep minimizes electricity consumption while the scanner is not in use, keeping operating costs in check. The CT system automatically enters eSleep mode following extended periods of nonuse, such as at night or during staff lunch breaks. What’s more, the system rapidly returns to scan-ready mode when needed, allowing users to resume their normal routines in no time.
