Catalina Imaging

Mobile Imaging Solutions

Leading mobile CT imaging provider Catalina Imaging has brand preferences because they provide advantages in mobile settings, resulting in a better experience for the medical facilities that rent mobile CT trailers.

Catalina Imaging’s brand references are primarily based on two factors: sliced count and dose of optimization.

According to previous studies, the higher slice counts, the shorter the scan time and the better resolution a CT scanner can provide. Nevertheless, some experts believe that 128-320 slice counts are overkill, and most medical facilities only need 16-slice CT that works well for emergency care centers, medium and large hospitals, and facilities with high traffic.

By contrast, lower slice count such as the 4-slice CT has certain limitations that only make it ideal in low-volume centers (i.e., one to two patients every week), veterinary practices, and urology diagnosis.

Due to the growing demand for lower radiation exposure, dose optimization is another critical factor when choosing a CT imaging scanner. Nowadays, there are models that can accommodate lower x-ray tube current and have improved detector dose efficiency.

GE Line

Their GE line includes the Revolution Discovery 750HD, and VCT 64/128. They also use software called ASiR that makes it possible to use the lowest dose and exposure to radiation possible without compromising the quality of the image.

The upfront cost of GE CT scanners is higher than other models in the market; however, their replacement parts, labor, and cost of service are lower. Also, they are easier to maintain because of their air-cooled system.

 

Toshiba CT Scanner

Toshiba scanners are known for their power and quality. For example, one of their most popular models Aquilion 16 (16-slice scanner) can rotate in just under 0.4 seconds but still provide highly detailed images at 12 frames per second.

As of this writing, Toshiba CT scanners are the preferred models to conduct bone density scans, lung analysis, and examinations involving cancer, urinary tract, musculoskeletal, and nervous system.

Siemens Mobile CT

Siemens scanners provide one of the best clinical performance thanks to their advanced radiation and minimization. This means that doctors enjoy sharper images even though their patients are exposed to lower levels of radiation exposure.

Compared to other brands, Siemens scanners are more affordable in terms of upfront cost and maintenance.

And lastly, they have models that can accommodate up to 456-lbs. patients, thanks to its 70 cm gantry bore plus a 70 cm field of view.
