Reaching more cardiovascular patients with CT
Coronary artery disease kills more people each year than any other disease – and the numbers are rising. Non-invasive cardiovascular diagnostic procedures save time and reduce risks, delivering quick results that help stage disease and guide treatment decisions.
NAEOTOM Alpha with Quantum Technology®, our radically new Dual Source photon-counting CT, is delivering Quantum HD Cardiac images with 0.2 mm slice thickness. This visualizes previously undetectable details in the heart without dose penalty. In addition, spectral information is automatically available in every scan with a direct conversion process that turns individual X-ray photons into an electrical signal to create the image.
Quantum Technology enables better diagnostic evaluation of coronary vessels in CT. According to a recent study, NAEOTOM Alpha and Quantum HD Cardiac could have helped to reduce the need of invasive coronary angiography for 54% of the patients in the detection of coronary artery disease in a high-risk population.1
Challenging the status quo
Professor Pál Maurovich-Horvat, MD, Head of Medical Imaging Center and chairman of Radiology at Semmelweis University, Hungary, is always striving to utilize cutting-edge technology. Find out how the remarkable images from NAEOTOM Alpha with Quantum Technology have improved his ability to evaluate even the most challenging cardiac cases.
