New Scanner Takes Stunning Images of Internal Organs

excerpted from an article by Lisa Zyga (article here at

Philips Medical Systems has recently unveiled a new medical scanner that can take images of the inside of the body with stunning precision.


While older scanners would have taken hours to perform a full-body CT scan, the Brilliance scanner can complete a full-body scan in less than a minute. The new scanner also reduces a patient's radiation exposure by up to 80% compared with other CT scanners.
