Amsterdam-based Philips unveiled the new CT 5100 Incisive platform with CT Smart Workflow at the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting in Chicago.
According to a news release, the company designed the new AI-enabled CT 5100 to accelerate CT workflows, enhance diagnostic confidence and maximize equipment uptime to help enhance patient outcomes, improve efficiency, reduce operational costs and meet financial objectives.
CT 5100 Incisive with CT Smart Workflow can potentially lower operating expenses by an estimated $420,000, Philips said, and also provides access to the company’s Technology Maximizer program, which offers the latest software and hardware updates as they are released.
“With the combination of CT 5100 – Incisive – and CT Smart Workflow, we have embedded AI into the tools that radiology departments use every day so they can apply their expertise to the patient, rather than unnecessary distractions associated with the CT imaging itself,” said Frans Venker, General Manager of Computed Tomography at Philips. “By automating many of the process-related obstacles to CT imaging performance, we aim to clear the way for precision in dose, speed, and image quality that will help imaging departments to meet their financial, clinical, and operational goals.”
Philips has been active in unveiling new imaging technology, with two coming out last week. First, the company launched a new magnetic resonance (MR) imaging portfolio powered by artificial intelligence (AI), then debuted its plan to bring its spectral CT imaging platform into a hybrid angio CT suite.
