The IQon CT provides health systems with a more sophisticated diagnostic tool and higher throughput capability. Philips’ pioneering advances in CT are one part of the company’s continuing drive to deliver an increasingly precise diagnosis for each patient. By combining different types of diagnostic information together intelligently in a single patient view, Philips supports clinicians in providing a first-time-right diagnosis.

Instead of using dual source to make spectrally similar images, the IQon delivers true spectral data with its dual-layer detector. Spectral data is always active on all scans, eliminating the need for protocol changes before scanning, saving time and reducing the need for re-scans.

This technology has the potential to make an important contribution to achieving the so-called ‘quadruple aim’ of healthcare: improving the patient experience with its low X-ray dose; improving the staff experience by simplifying workflow; enhancing health outcomes by enabling clinicians to better identify the different types of tissue in the body at high resolution; and lowering the cost of care by reducing the need for rescans. The distinctive workflow of the IQon scanner may reduce the number of re-scans by up to 25%.
