This scanner is the world’s first High Definition CT scanner. It uses a newly developed “Gemstone” detector with speed 100 times faster than other current detectors, which enables faster and higher sampling as well as dual energy sampling during a single rotation. With its ultra-high sampling rate, the scanner gives a high spatial resolution which helps the radiologist to potentially see more than what is possible on other high end CT scanners. The machine has the highest available cardiac spatial resolution and is capable of an effective temporal resolution of 29 mS which helps to virtually freeze and scan the heart at higher speeds.
