China Med 2009- Global Suppliers Showcased High-tech at its Best
CHINA MED 2009 not only furnishes large equipment showcasing zones for ultrasonography, biochemical and detection instruments, but also prepares special zones for medical consumables, orthopaedics related application information, radiation treatment and so on. Besides, a VIP Tour is also specially arranged for military senior executives, aiming to lead them to booths of the second generation dual-source CT featured with speedy scanning from Siemens Ltd., China Medical Solutions Group, Rayco (Shanghai) Medical Products Company Limited, LightSpeed CT from GE Healthcare China, Toshiba Medical Systems (China) Co., Ltd., Varian Medical Systems Trading (Beijing) Co., Ltd., Philips Healthcare Greater China, Shimadzu International Trading (Shanghai) Co., Ltd., etc. While showcasing the various new advanced products from renowned companies, this event also boasts the user experience of medical treatments.
The second generation double-source technology of CT-SOMATOM Definition Flash of Siemens has particularly solved the two major difficulties in CT technology which has obsessed the industry for more than 30 years: namely speeding up the scanning so as to release the patients from a breath-holding checkup; and decreasing the radiation dose to realize the “Green Imaging”. Based on the Flash Spiral scanning technology, the second generation double-source CT- SOMATOM Definition Flash, complemented by two detectors and with the equipment rack rotation of 0.28 second per circle and the collection of seamless coarse pitch (Pitch>3), has accelerated the scanning speed greatly and guaranteed the image quality as well: only 0.25 second needed for the total heart scanning and 0.6 second for the total thoraces scanning together with shortened exposure time, sharply decreased radiation dose compared with the regular multi-slice CT, namely less than 1 mSv radiation dose required for the heart scanning.
