Integrated CT Gantry Systems
CT Imaging is a vital part of a healthcare facility’s toolkit, but these systems require special housing due to the radiation required for diagnosis. The gantry components for a CT scanner are cylindrical, and the rotation of the gantry delivers the radiation dose for the CT Image.
The components of machinery are vital to the image quality of CT scans. Smooth operation and minimal noise ensure that continuous rotation happens with the imaging system.
Why use Analogic’s Integrated CT Gantry Systems
Analogic’s integrated CT gantry solutions facilitate a smoother and faster time to market for our OEM customers. Because we’re a trusted computed tomography manufacturer, we can define ideal integrated gantry solutions that combine our own subsystems with the components and subsystems that our customers may supply.
This level of partnership — maximizing our strengths and our customers’ — typically represents the most cost-effective configuration. Spiral CT offers continuous rotation for better angulation and the gantry aperture ensures the patient remains in the correct positioning. From there, Analogic’s technology with our OEM partner’s additions creates massive value.
Multiple, Flexible Gantry Options
Analogic’s solutions include a variety of setups to match the needs of our OEM customer’s market. These options include:
- Rotating gantry assembly with:
- Bearing assembly
- X-Ray tube
- X-Ray collimator
- Data management system (DMS)
- PowerLink™ Non-Contact power transfer system
- Scan control hardware
- Image reconstruction hardware and software
Integrated gantries are ideal for multi-modality applications, SPECT/CT and PET/CT, where CT-provided anatomical information complements functional imaging information. Standalone CT applications also benefit from the level of customization in an integrated solution.
Our gantry solutions have also been used for radiation oncology where CT system components and linac-based systems are combined for image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT) applications. Radiologists in multiple settings trust our components for soft tissue examinations and better field of view where CT scanning is warranted.
Find out how Analogic’s CT technology along with gantry configurations provides customers with the x-ray imaging they need for better patient outcomes and more efficient diagnosis.
