Volume Helical Shuttle

Extend coverage while avoiding cone-beam artifacts.

Volume Studies Improved

Volume Helical Shuttle is a continuous bi-directional scan mode that extends z-coverage while providing reliable temporal sampling. GE’s exceptional dynamic pitch reconstruction uses scan data acquired during table acceleration and deceleration, allowing you to perform up to 500-slice (312.5-mm) dynamic studies. This tool is used to perform 4D-CTA dynamic studies, or to study moving joint structures, opening new applications in orthopedic imaging. In addition, Volume Helical Shuttle lets you perform perfusion studies of body organs up to 120 mm.
