Philips begins shipments of MX 16-slice CT scanners

20 August 2009

Philips Healthcare has begun the first commercial shipments of the MX 16-slice CT scanner to customer sites around the globe.

The 16-slice system is aimed at customers who want to replace their current scanner or add a second system, but have purchasing cost concerns stemming from economic pressures.

The MX system has one of the widest high-quality imaging detectors in its class, providing fast high-resolution scanning, shorter breath-hold times and improved patient comfort.

It is capable of executing all routine applications, including exams like CT angiography (CTA), where a 16-slice scanner is typically required. It is also ideal for those clinicians who may want to add a scanner to expand their clinical services in the areas of CTA, dental planning and virtual colonoscopy.
