Danvers, Massachusetts-based NeuroLogica designed its BodyTom 64 for point-of-care mobile computed tomography (CT).
BodyTom 64 offers revisions to the company’s software and data acquisition system (DAS) based on customer feedback. For example, NeuroLogica incorporated Linux as the operating system. Also, it provided the ability to generate up to 64 cross-sectional CT images. This compares to 32 images produced by the previous version, the BodyTom Elite.
The scanner offers multi-departmental imaging that stretches across various needs. It can turn an operating room into an intraoperative neuro-imaging suite when combined with a radiolucent skull fixation device. This enhances neuro-navigation and surgical outcomes, according to a news release.
Additionally, BodyTom 64 combines internal lead shielding and battery operation. This allows for the transformation of a standard trauma bay into an advanced CT imaging suite. BodyTom 64 also offers the ability to rescan each stage of needle guidance, bringing multi-slice CT to the interventional radiology suite.
“We’re thrilled to build off our expertise and elevate point-of-care imaging with our BodyTom 64, which can transform any room in a hospital into an advanced imaging suite,” said Jason Koshnitsky, senior director of global sales and marketing for NeuroLogica. “This full-body 64-slice CT scanner is an upgraded version of the BodyTom Elite CT scanner, providing enhanced functionality with the same high-resolution imaging capabilities.”
