Overview

The Optima CT660 FREEdom Edition is designed to help you address challenging imaging situations, offering both high image quality and multiple dose reduction features on one platform - helping your clinical practice deliver performance without compromise.

The system also features SnapShot Freeze, an intelligent motion correction breakthrough that significantly reduces coronary motion, transcending the limits of CT rotation speed.

Technology

Tried and True Technologies

  • SnapShot* Freeze delivers equivalent gantry rotation of 0.058msec and effective temporal resolution of 29sec.
  • SnapShot* Pulse imaging combined with ASiR* may enable a dose reduction of greater than 83% compared to gated helical acquisition.
  • Innovative 40-mm V-Res detector at 0.35-sec rotation speed.
  • Up to 60% lower CO2 emissions using the energy saving mode.
  • ASiR1 technology may allow for lower mA exams throughout the body.
  • Simplified workflow for quick and streamlined operation.
  • Scalable, modular design for ease of service.
  • Volara digital data acquisition system produces up to 128-slice axial reconstruction for improved Z-axis visualization and artifact reduction.

1. In clinical practice, the use of ASiR may reduce CT patient dose depending on the clinical task, patient size, anatomical location, and clinical practice. A consultation with a radiologist and a physicist should be made to determine the appropriate dose to obtain diagnostic image quality for the particular clinical task.

Benefits

  • Emergency situations - Scan in one pass with diagnostic image quality and images reconstructed in real time.
  • Cardiac capabilities - Helping you get cardiac exams right the first time.
  • High image quality at lower dose - Diagnostic image quality for confident diagnosis at reduced dose Learn more (hyperlink to Dose management).
  • Simplicity - Intuitive to use, default patient positioning to reduce manual positioning, automated post-processing for improved workflow.
  • Patient care and comfort - Enhanced table coupled with a user friendly console to confirm patient information and program scan in the scan room.
  • Angiography - Extended range for dynamic CTA and functional assessment.
  • Perfusion - Twice the coverage with less dose using volume shuttle.
  • Energy efficient - consumes up to 60% less energy than previous GE CT systems and boasts a 15% lower siting requirement compared to other 64 channel detector scanners.
