Revolutionizing CT from referral to report

We are always seeking out new ways to boost operational efficiency with the goal of making your imaging workflow feel like second nature, possibly even invisible. When it comes to CT, we studied the entire workflow and created solutions to simplify and streamline each step of the process.

These solutions are the core of our Effortless Workflow model, a sophisticated collection of technologies that automate and simplify time-consuming tasks from pre-scan to post-scan. Effortless Workflow takes the CT experience to a new level of speed and precision.

Thinks fast. Works even faster.

Effortless Workflow includes AI-based features such as Intelligent Protocoling and Auto Positioning in addition to automated features such as Smart Plan, Auto Prescription and automated post-processing tools on the console. These intelligent applications are a key component of what transforms the CT experience, enabling Revolution Ascend to accurately and automatically personalize scans for each patient while requiring significantly less effort from the technologist.

Intelligent Protocoling

Intelligent Protocoling uses machine learning to automatically suggest a protocol for each exam. Learning from each site’s individual behaviors, Intelligent Protocoling reduces the time spent searching for protocols and may help in reducing errors in protocol selection.

Auto Positioning

AI-based Auto Positioning streamlines patient positioning workflow by minimizing actions into a single-click operation. It first detects landmark locations and displays scout scan range on the Xtream tablet and then determines the correct table elevation and cradle movements to align the scan range center to the CT isocenter.
  • Auto Landmark and Scout Range Display

    • Detects landmark locations using a deep learning algorithm and displays the scout scan range on the Xtream tablet
    • Allows visual confirmation and interactive adjustment of the scan range on the touchscreen
  • Auto Centering

    • Determines the scout scan range center and aligns it with the CT isocenter
    • Reduces the need for repositioning and re-scouting due to greater accuracy
  • Auto Patient Positioning

    • Positions the patient to the start scan location automatically with built-in AI
    • Streamlines your workflow by minimizing the positioning process to a single click

Smart Plan

Smart Plan uses information from the patient scout to automatically provide the correct scan range for head, chest, abdomen and pelvis scans, including multigroup scans.
  • Smart Plan features

    • Provides a start/end scan location and DFOV suggestion for specific anatomies based on scout images
    • Supports head, chest, abdomen and pelvis scans
    • Supports multigroup acquisition such as chest/abdomen, abdomen/pelvis and chest/abdomen/pelvis

Auto Prescription

Auto Prescription delivers an auto-adjustment of scan settings, balances dose and image quality, facilitates the optimal trade-off between scan speed and mAs and provides reusable, customizable patient profiles. Auto Prescription technology reduces scan time adjustments and eliminates the need for size-based protocols.
  • Auto Prescription features

    • Delivers balanced dose and image quality for specific anatomies based on scout images
    • Facilitates low kV and low dose imaging where appropriate
    • Enables increased throughput and consistency by reducing scan time adjustments
    • Simplifies protocoling through reusable, customizable profiles

Automated post-processing tools

Revolution Ascend streamlines your post-processing tasks through Prospective Multiple Reconstruction, automated reformatted view generation and a suite of intelligent applications designed to deliver high efficiency and high quality CT imaging in all clinical areas.
  • Cardiac post-processing features

    • SnapShot Freeze 2 provides an automated whole-heart motion-correction algorithm with an effective temporal resolution of 29 ms*
    • Automated post-processing applications for coronary analysis and calcium score allow you to read images directly on your console or secondary image reading station
  • Neuro post-processing features

    • FastStroke delivers a fully automated processing platform for CT ischemic stroke studies
    • On-console applications automatically process and send images to your stroke team via email
    • Automated post-processing applications facilitate image review directly at the scanner or from one of up to four remote clients, which can all be accessed simultaneously
