Delivering high-quality care means being able to scan every patient regardless of their size or condition.2 With Symbia Evo, you can improve the satisfaction of large or claustrophobic patients with a 30%3 larger bore and shorter tunnel length—for more comfortable and shorter scans. A high-weight capacity, low-height patient bed and exceptional detector flexibility further increase your scannable population by accommodating patients with limited mobility.
