ECRI Institute Guides Hospital Decision-Makers in the Purchase of CT Scanning Systems
Date:2/16/2012

PLYMOUTH MEETING, Pa., Feb. 16, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- ECRI Institute®, an independent nonprofit organization that researches the best approaches to improving patient care, has released CT Scanning Systems, a new "infographic-style white paper" designed to give hospital leaders an at-a-glance overview of the current landscape of computed tomography (CT), from the most popular makes and models, to average pricing, and most importantly, dose safety.

"There are more options than ever when choosing which CT scanning system to buy," states Jennifer Myers, ECRI Institute's Vice President of SELECT Health Technology Services. "Hospitals are asking for guidance on performance levels as well as how to ensure their patients are protected from cancer risks associated with radiation overexposure."

To help radiology/diagnostic imaging directors and hospital C-Suite decision-makers with the selection and procurement of this significant capital expenditure, the paper discusses:

  • CT scanner performance levels from 16-slice to premium models
  • Top 4 CT manufacturers based on member interest
  • Top 10 CT models and average costs
  • New dose reduction technologies and dose safety guidance

Manufacturers are taking steps to lower radiation dose by introducing new, state-of the art technologies that can achieve dose reductions of 20 to 80%. The paper identifies Iterative Reconstruction (IR), advanced image processing software that reduces image noise while reducing radiation dose to patients, as the technology garnering the most interest today. Several of these technologies are named in the report.
