Scenaria View

Information

Manufacturer:

SCENARIA View 128 is a powerful premium performance CT solution that provides dependable routine application capabilities with available advanced clinical modules for Interventional CT, extended coverage Shuttle Scanning (for Perfusion Exams), Cardiac CTA and Dual Energy examinations. The View employs 64 discrete detector and electronics channels over a 40mm detector coverage and reconstructs up to 128-slices per scan rotation.

Unique and clinically valuable capabilities of the View include:

  • Hitachi’s Next Generation Vision Model based Iterative Reconstruction capability “Intelli IPV” that can provide dose reduction up to 83% at the same image quality*.
  • A wider 80cm gantry aperture, a more powerful 84kW generator provides up to 700mA operation
  • The advantages of the standard Auto Lateral Shift Table enables ±10cm lateral shift (20cm total shift range) providing easier and more accurate positioning of the patient’s anatomy of interest at the scan Field of View’s iso-center where spatial resolution is better than off-center
  • HiMAR Plus metal artifact reduction minimizes objectionable metal induced artifacts
  • The View includes XR-25 Dose-Check control and is XR-29 Smart-Dose Compliant, while providing FDA 510(k) Cleared Indication for use for Low-Dose CT lung Cancer Screening

Benefits

Optimized Positioning 

  • Lateral Shift Table ± 10CM
    • IntelliCenter Auto-Lateral Shift Table is the only standard table that can shift up to ± 10cm laterally (20cm total range) to:
      • Assist patient positioning
      • Reduce dose
      • Improve spatial resolution
  • Multi-Bowtie Filters
    • Multi-Bowtie filter size selection, based on anatomy to be imaged, reduces radiation dose in areas outside the filter’s field of view. When used together with the auto lateral shift table, off-center anatomy can be brought to iso-center and the smallest bow-tie filter utilized.

Patient Comfort

  • Higher Data Sampling Rate
    • SCENARIA View’s higher data sampling rate provides faster anatomic coverage without sacrificing image quality and reduces motion artifacts.
  • Wide 80CM Gantry Aperture
    • A more open 80cm gantry aperture spaciously accommodates the most challenging patients.
  • 550lbs Table Weight Capacity
    • Higher standard weight capacity to accommodate larger patients up to 250 kg (550 lbs.).

Lower Dose Techniques

  • IPV – Iterative Reconstruction
    • IPV is Hitachi’s Next-generation “vision modeled” iterative processing that provides dose reduction and overcomes a conventional IR weakness by IPV maintaining normal image texture that better matches the image texture appearance of Filtered Back Projection (FBP).
    • Utilizing IPV vs. conventional FBP reconstruction can provide:
      • Dose reduction up to 83% at the same image quality (low contrast detectability)
      • Image noise reduction up to 90% at the same dose
      • Noise reduction rate control according to the IPV level used
      • Low contrast detectability improvement by up to 2.0X (100%) at the same dose
      • Natural image texture appearance (the shape of noise power spectrum) similar to that of FBP, even if using higher IPV strength level
  • Intelli EC Plus
    • Hitachi’s proprietary 3D mA modulation technology, Intelli EC, automatically modulates mA to lower individual patient dose levels depending on patient anatomy and size and considering the level of iterative reconstruction selected. Intelli EC Plus can be set to provide real-time control of mA, to achieve a constant Noise Standard-Deviation in the resulting images.
  • Higher Data Sampling Rate
    • SCENARIA View’s higher data sampling rate provides faster anatomic coverage without sacrificing image quality and reduces motion artifacts.
  • Reduced kV
    • Four settings support lower kV and dose based on individual patient size.
    • Lower kV provides lower dose for small and pediatric patients.
      • 80kV
      • 100kV
      • 120kV
      • 140kV
  • Reduced Dose For Cardiac CTA
    • ECG Dose Modulation reduces mA during the cardiac phases of a retrospectively gated exam that are not intended for image reconstruction.
  • Axial Snap-Shot Imaging
    • Pulses the X-ray “on” only during a phase of the cardiac cycle using prospectively gated step-and-shoot cardiac scanning – reducing radiation dose.
  • Dose Reporting and Awareness
    • SCENARIA View provides both DICOM Dose Structured Report and a Simple Dose Report to satisfy the full range of your IT and physician reading dose reporting needs. And, SCENARIA View includes Dose Check, compliant with NEMA XR-25, to monitor for exam doses that may exceed notice or alert levels.
