Radiology Associates of Albuquerque (RAA) recently became the first outpatient imaging center in the area to install GE Healthcare’s Optima• CT660, an advanced, scalable Computed Tomography (CT) system offering lower radiation dose capabilities and enhanced ease-of-use in a range of cardiovascular, oncology, neurology, angiography and other procedures. This imaging system will enable physicians to acquire high quality images to help better diagnose patients.

Located in Albuquerque, New Mexico’s most populous city, RAA operates as a hospital-based radiology group providing services to Presbyterian facilities in a 100-mile radius, as well as three outpatient-imaging facilities.

RAA’s mission is to provide compassionate, comprehensive, high quality imaging for its patients and its referring community using the most innovative and advanced techniques available. RAA provides a vast array of services including mammography, MRI, CT, ultrasound, X-ray, osteoporosis screening, virtual colonoscopy and fluoroscopy.

“We expanded our services to provide the community with exceptional, advanced technology in diagnostic imaging,” said RAA President, Dr. Brian Potts. “With the new Optima CT660, we are furthering our commitment to high quality, low radiation dose imaging to benefit our patients across a range of procedures, from neurology to musculoskeletal.”

The Optima CT660 leverages GE’s innovative ASiR*+ (Adaptive Statistical Iterative Reconstruction) technology to help physicians maintain diagnostic image quality while dramatically reducing patient radiation dose.

Additionally, the CT660’s purposeful design and workflow enhancements offer advanced imaging for facilities constrained by space or resources. It is also among the world’s most energy efficient Volume CT systems, using about 60 percent less energy than previous-generation scanners.

In the first few days installed, the Optima CT660 has expanded RAA’s capabilities by offering lower doses of radiation and shorter scan times, which is beneficial to all but it is particularly beneficial to pediatric patients and those who receive multiple scans. The Optima CT660 has also increased the scope of exams that can now be performed at RAA. Since its installation it has scanned more than 80 patients, and has also increased quality of care.

“Radiology Associates of Albuquerque’s installation of the CT660, a critical tool for advanced diagnostic care, is an important offering for the patients RAA serves as well as its clinicians,” said Scott Miller, GM of Sales and Marketing, US Molecular Imaging and Computed Tomography for GE Healthcare. “We are proud to support RAA’s mission to deliver high-quality diagnostic imaging and exceptional patient care to the local community.”

+ ASiR is a reconstruction technology that may enable reduction in pixel noise standard deviation. The ASiR reconstruction algorithm may allow for reduced mA in the acquisition of diagnostic images, thereby reducing the dose required. In clinical practice, the use of ASiR may reduce CT patient dose depending on the clinical task, patient size, anatomical location and clinical practice. A consultation with a radiologist and a physicist should be made to determine the appropriate dose to obtain diagnostic image quality for the particular clinical task.
