GE Healthcare has received clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for several of its new CT scanners to be used in performing radiation therapy (RT) simulation procedures. The new wide-bore models approved for this purpose include the Discovery CT590 RT and Optima CT580 RT.
The Discovery CT590 RT has an automated 4D video organ motion recording feature that captures organ movement to better adapt future radiation therapy treatments. It includes GE's adaptive statistical iterative reconstruction (ASIR) dose-reduction protocol.
Both scanners are also available for interventional and bariatric CT procedures.
