Computed Tomography (CT) scans play a vital role as a diagnostic tool for adults, and they are also extremely helpful with diagnosing illnesses in children. In pediatrics, physicians and radiologists are especially sensitive to radiation levels. We’re pleased that our new Philips CT system modalities have the lowest-dose CT in the market.
The advanced capabilities of the new Phillip’s system provides an 80 percent lower dose of radiation with up to a 68 percent image improvement.
