To develop the Brilliance iCT CT system, Philips has brought technology innovation to every component of the CT imaging chain. The iCT reportedly optimizes imaging speed, X-ray tube power, detector coverage and dose utility mechanisms to deliver diagnostic accuracy at lower radiation doses. The Philips Essence technology, comprised of new X-ray tubes, 8-centimeter nano-panel detectors and RapidView reconstruction, combined with other innovative technologies such as the air-bearing gantry allowing faster rotation, contribute to the Brilliance iCT’s reputation as one of the most advanced CT imaging systems on the market.
“In designing the Brilliance iCT scanner, Philips has successfully overcome technical trade-offs to develop a system that is both highly capable and cost-effective,” said Nadim Daher, Frost & Sullivan senior industry analyst. “The iCT was designed from the ground up to deliver the dependability and performance required in CT operations including the most mission-critical clinical environments.”
