The Revolution EVO scans quickly in one pass with high diagnostic image quality and images reconstructed in real time.

The high power capability and thin slices of the scanner also provide the clarity needed for detecting small lesions.

^ 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.
