Advanced CT scan installed in Isabela hospital

Health technology company Royal Philips recently installed the first Philips Incisive CT (computed tomography) in the Philippines at Callang General Hospital and Medical Center in Isabela.  

The Incisive CT integrates innovations in imaging, workflow, and lifecycle management, helping healthcare providers improve the CT experience for patients and staff, enable smart clinical decision-making, and increase efficiency.

The Incisive CT’s 70 kV scan mode allows for improved low-contrast detectability and confidence at low dose for patients, which can help staff feel confident about managing dose without sacrificing image quality. It also seamlessly integrates with Philips IntelliSpace Portal to offer post-processing for complex cases, enabling radiologists to access advanced analysis tools all in one comprehensive system.

It also supports a higher level of scanning consistency across different members of the system’s operating team, with a recent study showing the system reduced examination time by 19 percent. 

With its industry-first “Tube for Life” guarantee, Philips will replace the Incisive’s X-ray tube—a key component of any CT system—at no additional cost throughout the entire life of the system, potentially lowering operating expenses.
