A next generation multi-slice, small bore, mobile computerized tomography (CT) system delivers high-quality point-of-care (POC) imaging.

The NeuroLogica (Danvers, MA, USA) OmniTom Elite is an innovative 16-slice (0.625 mm per slice) CT scanner that delivers high quality non-contrast CT, CT angiography, and CT perfusion scans at the POC. The 40 cm gantry allows improved coverage of the adult head and neck area, and full body pediatric scanning. Acquisition features include effective dose optimization, distributed acoustic sensing (DAS) noise detectors, and automatic exposure control (AEC) to improve mA modulation during helical and axial scanning.

The system is controlled via an ergonomic wireless tablet, designed with a single user in mind that offers touch control, vocal feedback, and animations. Reconstruction features include 3D and multi-planar imaging, mean slab, maximum/minimum intensity projection, and oblique datasets. Metal artifact and other corrections can be added to the primary reconstruction, including Iodine delivery rate (IDR), direct digital radiography (DDR), windmill artifact reduction, automatic bolus tracking and contrast injector triggering to maximize workflow efficiency.

“The OmniTom Elite’s ability to provide versatile, real-time mobile imaging enables healthcare providers to administer point-of-care CT to critical patients without the need to transport them to a separate department,” said David Webster, Chief Operating Officer of NeuroLogica. “It is truly a facility-wide solution that decreases the time it takes to diagnose and initiate treatment for patients in need of care.”

Expanding on its predecessor, the OmniTom Elite now includes an omni-wheel design with 360-degree mobility; an integrated drive system with drive camera and audio/visual sensors to facilitate unimpeded movement; auto-alignment to streamline scanner-to-patient bed alignment in restricted spaces; integrated shielding to protect staff; and a mobile stroke unit (MSU) configuration for use in emergency vehicles. The battery operated system is rechargeable in a standard wall outlet, allowing for continued use throughout a facility.
