CT Comparisons

8) GE LightSpeed CT vs. BrightSpeed CT: The Main Differences

By far, the LightSpeed is still dominant over the BrightSpeed in systems installed.  Part of the reason for this is that it took some time for the BrightSpeed to catch on, particularly in the USA.

9) Siemens Emotion CT Scanners: The Slice Difference

As the market for refurbished CT’s continues to grow, our customers have been asking for information about a wide variety of CT systems for 6-slice, 16-slice and 64-slice CTs.
