Boscobel's new CT scanner

Boscobel's new CT scanner

Gundersen Boscobel Area Hospital and Clinics' new CT scanner offers its patients improved imaging accuracy.

The new scanner, a 64-slice SOMATOM.go.All by Siemens, is one of the latest available, featuring wireless operation to increase efficiency and improve patient care.

Wireless operation allows imaging technologists greater flexibility to perform workflows bedside when needed for critical patients. The scanner also provides enhanced radiation reduction technology for increased patient safety, faster image reconstruction and precise timing for vascular exams.

"We have been amazed by the positive impact it's already made in patient care," said Lead Technologist Terri Quast. "The wireless capability allows us to spend more time with our patients, which is reassuring to them."

Upgrading to a CT scanner of this caliber will continue to make a difference in the lives of patients and staff, said Gundersen Boscobel's Director of Ancillary Services Judy Dayton.

"The scanner's dynamic imaging, reliable results and minimized radiation exposure capabilities now allow us to deliver the highest-quality care," she said. "It also lets our staff have more interaction with our patients."

The new scanner is now available in Boscobel.
