Torrance Memorial Acquires Philips IQon Elite Spectral CT Scan
Torrance Memorial Utilizes Advanced Technology
for confident diagnosis in the first scan with advanced computerized tomography (CT)
TORRANCE, Calif., March 25, 2021 – Torrance Memorial is dedicated to investments in technology allowing physicians to offer advanced treatment options to improve outcomes and speed of recovery in patient care. We are committed to delivering personalized, compassionate and supportive care by highly skilled experts.
We are proud to announce our recent acquisition of the Philips IQon Elite Spectral CT scan which is the world’s first and only detector-based spectral solution for every patient. This state-of-the-art technology delivers valuable clinical insights for confident disease management. This proprietary approach to CT scanning provides extraordinary diagnostic quality, with spectral results 100% of the time, in a single routine scan.
“With this new technology, we can analyze conventional and spectral results as part of a routine scan retrospectively anytime, anywhere. This capability allows physicians to feel more confident in diagnosis, improved time to diagnosis and reduction in follow-up scans.” said interventional radiologist George So, MD.
Spectral detection technology applies a unique dual-layer detector which simultaneously distinguishes high and low energy, reducing scanning time and improving data integrity. The energy captured in the detector-based scanning and clinical applications experience eliminates the pre-decisions required for source-based solutions. And space spectral reconstruction projection enables spectral results with no additional reconstruction or post-processing.
