GE Healthcare launches new CT technologies
GE Healthcare this week unveiled the company's new family of LightSpeed CT systems which now include the Volara digital Data Acquisition System (DAS), and the Xtream FX workflow platform. 

The announcement was made at the 7th Annual International Symposium on Multidetector-Row CT (MRCT) presented by the Stanford University School of Medicine, Department of Radiology, this week in San Francisco, Calif.

The new family of systems -- called the LightSpeed VFX Series -- will utilize the Volara digital DAS technology, and Xtream FX workflow platform, originally developed for GE's LightSpeed VCT.  As a result, clinicians will be able to tap many of the image quality and productivity capabilities of the LightSpeed VCT on GE's 4, 8 and 16 slice CT systems, GE said.
