Choosing a CT scanner with the right number of data slices
Are you currently looking for your next CT Solution and therefore trying to decide, which used CT scanner is best for you? Before you decide the number of data slices should be considered. A higher slice count will help reduce scan time and furthermore produce a higher picture resolution, but a lower slice count can for many hospitals be sufficient – it all depends on what your scan requirements. A 16-slice CT scanner is typically a good match for high volume hospitals. Whereas 64-slice CTs are often used for cardiac or trauma cases, or for hospitals where time is the essence. Lastly, the 128-slice CT scanner is commonly used specifically for cardiac purposes, and such scanners can do a whole-body scan in just seconds and provide 3D images of excellent quality.
Two absolute key point to be aware of when purchasing a pre-owned or refurbished CT scanner is:
1. What type of exams will the scanner primarily be performing?
2. What limitations would you like to alleviate with the installation of a new, used CT scanner?
