Bariatric abdomen/pelvis

Case Study
Philips CT Clinical Science Philips Healthcare • USA

Clinical history

This patient with a BMI of 68 and weighing over 300 pounds came to the emergency department at University Medical Center LSU complaining of abdominal discomfort. The CT technologist performed an abdominal CT scan using the IQon Spectral CT, iPatient and Spectral CT Viewer to perform the exam.
Lower left image: Conventional CT; Lower right image: MonoE 50 keV.

Clinical significance

With the IQon Spectral CT, you have no restrictions on scanning due to size or weight. You can scan even those larger patients that traditionally a scanner might have difficulty scanning.

* Results from case studies are not predictive of results in other cases. Results in other cases may vary.
