GE BrightSpeed Elite 16 Slice CT Scanner

The GE BrightSpeed Elite 16 Slice CT Scanner has workflow that simplifies and accelerates image acquisition, processing and reporting

GE BrightSpeed Elite Overview

Built on GE’s Lightspeed VCT (Volara DAS, Xtream FX) technology with a more compact footprint, the BrightSpeed Elite 16-Slice CT machine provides high quality images across a wide range of clinical applications

With ASiR, the BrightSpeed Elite may deliver image pixel standard deviation equivalent to an acquisition with higher generator power. BrightSpeed Elite offers efficiency improvements, an enhanced operator console and table design to improve workflow capabilities.


GE Lightspeed 16 is a dependable, user friendly CT scanner. Lightspeed 16 provides sub second scan times 0.5s, SmartTools Productivity User interface for increase set up and patient throughput

One of the smallest footprints in the market. Requiring a minimum room size of 18.4 square meters, the BrightSpeed Elite optimizes the speed, power and resolution needed for all types of routine application.

IQ Enhance:
Scan as fast as a 50-slice equivalent CT in a wide range of studies without sacrificing image quality for speed.

3D dose modulation:
BrightSpeed Elite uses a 3D modulation algorithm which automatically adjusts the mA while maintaining the desired image quality, as you scan along x-y-z axes reducing dose up to 40%.

Low Dose High Image Quality:
BrightSpeeds bowtie filter technology automatically attenuates off-axis rays to maintain a more uniform X-ray field at the detectors. This minimizes dose and reduces X-ray scattering effects.

Color-Coded Pediatric protocols:
An intuitive interface for pediatric exams uses color codes to offer the user a selection of protocols tuned in advance to suit the weight of the child.

Dose Report and Prospective Dose Display:
BrightSpeed Elite provides an easy-to-archive DICOM-structured dose report. It provides a clear summary of the CTDIvol and DLP parameters, so you can compute the dose received during the scan series.
