Baldwin Patients in Need of CT Scan Have New High-Quality, Low Dose Option

Navicent Health Baldwin Now Offering GE Healthcare’s Revolution EVO

Navicent Health Baldwin (NHB) has further solidified its commitment to high, diagnostic-quality images at an optimized dose to the patient with the addition of GE Healthcare’s leading CT imaging technology.

The Revolution EVO scans quickly in one pass with high diagnostic image quality and images reconstructed in real time. The patient can be scanned in seconds, which is critical in emergency situations. The high power capability and thin slices of the scanner also provide the clarity needed for detecting small lesions.

The Revolution EVO is equipped with the exclusive ASiR™^ low dose reconstruction technology that can help physicians significantly reduce dose while maintaining the high image quality and low contrast detectability they need for accurate diagnosis.

“At Navicent Health Baldwin, we are committed to offering our patients the latest technology to ensure high0quality, efficient care. This is particularly important during diagnostic testing, to ensure accurate diagnosis. We are pleased to offer GE Healthcare’s Revolution EVO – the latest in CT technology – to those who rely on Navicent Health Baldwin for care,” said Judy Ware, CEO of NHB.

The Revolution EVO system is a 64-slice scanner that allows for fast, high-quality acquisition at optimized dose for patients young and old, large and small and can be used across a wide spectrum of procedures including cardiac, angiography, brain, chest, abdomen, orthopedic and more. It is environmentally-friendly with electric innovations that are designed to reduce power consumption by 54 percent.

^ 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.
