UWCT1

UWCT1 is a wide-bore 16-slice CT scanner (Model 580W, manufactured by GE Healthcare, Waukesha, WI) located in room E3/377 (Room 1) of University Hospital. It was installed in 2012. It is used primarily for clinical interventional procedures such as tumor ablations and biopsies. This scanner has a bore diameter of 80 cm and z-axis coverage of 20 mm, while most GE CT scanners have a bore diameter of 70 cm. This large bore size allows for easier access to patients during interventional procedures and allows us to accommodate larger patients. This scanner also has a couch that is capable of handling more weight than a regular GE CT couch, making this scanner well-suited for imaging obese patients. This scanner is equipped with the fluoroscopic imaging package, which allows for real-time three-dimensional imaging.

UWCT2

UWCT2 is a 32-slice CT scanner (Model Optima 660, manufactured by GE Healthcare, Waukesha, WI) located in room E3/365 (Room 2) of University Hospital. It was installed in 2015. It is used primarily for standard clinical imaging. This scanner has a bore diameter of 70 cm and z-axis coverage of 20 mm. This scanner is equipped with the fluoroscopic imaging package, which allows for real-time three-dimensional imaging.

UWCT3

UWCT3 is a 64-slice CT scanner (Model Optima 660, manufactured by GE Healthcare, Waukesha, WI) located in room E3/363 (Room 3) of University Hospital. It was installed in 2013. It is used primarily for standard clinical imaging. This scanner has a bore diameter of 70 cm and z-axis coverage of 40 mm. This scanner is equipped with the iterative reconstruction option ASiR, which is a software feature used for reducing image noise and/or reducing the dose of ionizing radiation.

UWCT4

UWCT4 is a 64-slice CT scanner (Model Discovery 750 HD/Revolution GSI, manufactured by GE Healthcare, Waukesha, WI) located in room E3/347 (Room 4) of University Hospital. It was installed in 2013. It is used primarily for standard clinical imaging. This scanner has a bore diameter of 70 cm and z-axis coverage of 40 mm. This scanner is equipped with iterative reconstruction options including Veo and ASiR, which are software features used for reducing imaging noise and/or reducing the dose of ionizing radiation. It also offers dual energy scanning, which allows electron density and “material decomposition” images to be produced.
