Computed Tomography (CT) plays a critical role in diagnosing cardiac diseases. Recent research advocates a "CT first" approach for patients with chest pain and undiagnosed coronary artery disease, thus enhancing patient care by circumventing more invasive procedures. However, the scarcity of high-quality CT systems and the lack of physicians skilled in interpreting cardiac CT exams often prevent this approach. Now, an innovative artificial intelligence (AI)-enabled CT system meets the advanced diagnostic imaging demands for cardiac care patient guidelines and also addresses other complex areas such as trauma care and interventional procedures.

Royal Philips (Amsterdam‎, Noord-Holland) has launched the CT 5300 system which features advanced AI technology for a wide spectrum of uses, including diagnosis, interventional procedures, and screening. This adaptable X-ray CT system boosts diagnostic confidence, streamlines workflow efficiency, and optimizes system uptime, consequently improving patient outcomes and departmental productivity. The system incorporates virtual tools for real-time collaboration and clinical/technical support, addressing issues like higher patient volumes, complex cases, staffing shortages, and budget restrictions. By providing the clinical expertise and features typically associated with high-end scanners in a more economical and versatile system, the CT 5300 makes cutting-edge medical technology more accessible.

A notable feature of the CT 5300 is the Nanopanel Precise, the industry’s first detector designed from scratch specifically for AI-based reconstruction. This innovative detector maximizes the potential of Philips' Precise Image reconstruction software, delivering high-quality images with significantly lower radiation doses. The software can reduce noise by up to 85% and enhance low-contrast detectability by 60%, all at an 80% reduced dose compared to traditional image reconstruction. Combined with Precise Cardiac motion compensation, the CT 5300 is particularly suited for high-quality, motion-free cardiac imaging, even in patients with rapid or irregular heartbeats. The system also includes Philips CT Collaboration Live, enabling remote assistance during exams where extra expertise or support is necessary. This feature not only enhances patient care by allowing more time for patient interaction but also improves the operator experience by boosting productivity and alleviating staff shortages. The CT 5300 system is designed with a focus on sustainability and long-term value, notably in its reduced energy consumption.

“We listened to radiologists about the issues they face every day and what they wanted out of a next-generation CT system. We then combined the latest imaging and AI technologies to meet their needs and created a system that delivers next-level diagnostic confidence, empowers workflows, and ensures lifetime value,” said Frans Venker, Business Leader of CT at Philips. “We’ve leveraged AI in virtually every aspect of the CT 5300, freeing both CT technicians and radiologists from tedious, time-consuming tasks so they can spend more time focused on their patients.”
