MetroWest Medical Center Advances CT Imaging with New CT ScannerJan 15, 2020
Framingham, MA – December 19, 2019 - MetroWest Medical Center advances its CT imaging with a new CT scanner from Siemens Healthineers. The system, called SOMATOM® go.Top, enables the hospital to support routine and advanced CT procedures that may enhance diagnostic accuracy by providing additional diagnostic information to patients and their physicians.
Technologists can operate the CT system with a remote control, which allows them to stay next to their patients for a longer period of time during exam preparation. This may improve patient experience, particularly for patients who have mobility challenges and need additional support. This system also provides high quality imaging and low radiation dose.
“We recognize that healthcare technology is continuously advancing,” says Andrew Harding, Chief Executive Officer of MetroWest Medical Center. “Providing our physicians with the information they need right at their fingertips allows them to deliver the best care possible and create a great patient experience.”
This new CT scanner delivers consistent, reliable results in many aspects of hospital imaging including the most advanced fields such as cardiac and coronary artery imaging, CT guided minimally invasive interventional procedures and routine-ready dual energy. The system also offers features that can reduce imaging artifacts from implanted devices, such as knee and hip implants and dental fillings, which can improve image quality.
