CT scanners have been around for years, but the images captured are often blurry unless a patient is completely still. In fact, as the British Journal of Radiology reports “almost two-thirds of patients referred to cardiac CT today were found to have high heart rates. Some are turned away from being scanned.” GE’s Revolution CT gets rid of this problem by being able to take a CT scan within seconds, or about the time of one heartbeat.

The scanner was introduced at the 99th annual Radiological Association of North America, which is set to truly be revolutionary because it provides quick, accurate scans with less radiation. The CT scanner is set to be able to read even the most challenging of patients and be suitable for a wide range of clinical specialities.
