NeuroLogica, a subsidiary of Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd., has announced that Florida Hospital in Orlando, Florida, added the BodyTom Elite, the newly upgraded, portable, 32-slice computed tomography scanner, to its brachytherapy suite.
The BodyTom Elite improves the patient experience, patient safety and workflow efficiency by eliminating the need to transfer patients. The scanner increases the volume the department can take on while decreasing operating room time by allowing patient repositioning to occur in the OR. Real-time imaging enhances accuracy when treating cancer patients undergoing brachytherapy treatment.
“Introducing a 32-slice CT scanner has improved our imaging quality and our post-scan reconstruction capabilities, which has helped us deliver our patients higher quality care,” said Dr. Matthew Biagioli, board certified radiation oncologist at Florida Hospital. “Looking forward, the addition of the BodyTom Elite will allow us to accommodate a higher volume of patients in our brachytherapy suite.”
The BodyTom Elite incorporates a fresh new visual design, upgraded software including improved noise- and metal-artifact reduction, along with multiple hardware enhancements. The system remains a self-shielded, multi-departmental imaging solution capable of transforming any room in the hospital into an advanced imaging suite.
