“One of the most important things when I teach anatomy is teaching students about variation and evolution,” Schachner said. “When I talk about the spine, I always talk about how the discs in between the vertebrae originally evolved to be under tension instead of compression. I describe how the serratus anterior, which straps your shoulder to your body, shifts the arm position in a biped relative to how it would be in a quadruped, and how the function changes. It puts the limb in a different perspective.”

PRODUCT SPOTLIGHT

Siemens Healthineers NAEOTOM Alpha Photon-Counting CT Scanner

Siemens Healthineers NAEOTOM Alpha Photon-Counting CT Scanner

The NAEOTOM Alpha with Quantum Technology from Siemens Healthineers is the world’s first photon-counting computed tomography (CT) scanner and the result of more than 15 years of research and development. Quantum Technology provides four distinct benefits: improved image contrast, higher spatial resolution without the usual dose penalty, complete elimination of electronic noise, and intrinsic spectral sensitivity. The NAEOTOM Alpha combines that Quantum Technology with the company’s Dual Source technology, which provides fast temporal resolution, high scan speeds, and immense power reserves to potentially offer radiologists more insights in every exam, a new level of detail, and the ability to diagnose patients who were previously unscannable.

United Imaging UCT 550 Advance

United Imaging UCT 550 Advance

For customers who need to move fast, but who’ve always wanted to expand their clinical capabilities – and who know that simply repairing their computed tomography scanner or replacing it with another used one doesn’t move them forward – the uCT 550 Advance is game changing. United Imaging provides a brand new, powerful, modern 80-slice CT system in up to two weeks from the time of order. Providers who choose the uCT 550 Advance will also see their ROI grow with All-in Configurations, routine maintenance and parts, and Software Upgrades for Life all included at no additional cost.

Stryker Airo TruCT Imaging System

Stryker Airo TruCT Imaging System

Stryker’s Airo TruCT Imaging System, featuring a 32-slice detector and fan beam diagnostic-quality imaging, provides physicians with a clear understanding of the level of disease in the lungs of patients with pulmonary disease, including COVID-19, to aid diagnosis and treatment decisions. Weighing as little as 1,800 pounds, it is compact enough to fit into a standard hospital transport elevator. Its ability to self-propel during transportation makes it highly mobile, unlike traditional stationary CT imaging systems. Once it reaches the desired location, it can be powered by a standard wall outlet.

NeuroLogica OmniTom Elite

NeuroLogica OmniTom Elite

The world of medical imaging is no longer just black and white. NeuroLogica Corp., a subsidiary of Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd., announced that its state-of-the-art OmniTom Elite has received 510(k) clearance for the addition of Photon Counting Detector (PCD) technology. NeuroLogica delivers the first FDA 510(k) cleared, single-source photon counting computed tomography (CT) scanner with single detector on a mobile system. OmniTom Elite with PCD can generate spectral CT images at multiple energy levels. The OmniTom Elite has the ability to provide versatile, real-time mobile imaging to administer point-of-care CT to critical patients without the need to transport them to a separate imaging department. The mobile unit will decrease the time it takes to diagnose and initiate treatment for these critical patients.

Increase Rest Ethic With Moments Of Unproductive Productivity

Under “normal” circumstances, imaging leaders are productive junkies. We are busy with quality and safety initiatives, reviewing budgets, leading research, building high reliability organizations, supporting the team, providing patient-centric care, and doing all we can to ensure a productive and efficient operation. It appears that leaders are programmed to work more in our industry or it could be the mere tradition of Western culture to support work alcoholics. More and more, we are tied to our phones and emails 24/7, constantly “on.”
