Remember, when considering which CT scanner to purchase, not only is it important to consider the number of data slices, but also to take into account the length of coverage in one rotation. The rotation time of the tube and the detectors surrounding the patient (gantry rotation time) has a direct effect on overall scan time.

 

The CT Scanner comparison chart below is designed to serve as an example of how single and multi-slice CT systems on the market compare to one another. (Of course there are so many more to choose from, which is what we are here to help you with!) Whether you are looking to purchase single-slice, multi-slice, or Mobile CT scan systems, Amber has the resources and knowledge to help you select your perfect system!
