Computed Tomography (CT), Philips BRILLIANCE CT-6. The CT system includes 24 solid-state detectors that enable the acquisition of 6 simultaneous slices per 360º rotation, with a minimal slice thickness (0.6 mm) at an imaging time of 0.75 seconds per 360º for a full body scan.
These features make a high working speed possible with excellent image quality. The images can be processed in either basic or advanced mode from a workstation with the following software: Angio-CT, CINE mode, dynamic focal point reconstruction, multiplanar reconstruction (linear, curvilinear, etc), 3D multi tissue reconstruction (MIP, VR…), small volumes 3D analysis, and measurement tools for quantification (Q-CTA).
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Philips- INTERA 1.5T. The MRI equipment (Philips Intera 1.5T) enables the acquisition –using non-invasive techniques- of high definition images of any body organ at different planes, focusing on large animals as experimental models.
The availability of high precision images during research activities enables the researcher to choose correct clinical treatment. This equipment is also used in the follow up of some R&D + innovation lines; during the post operative period of experimental subjects, i.e. in activities such as cellular therapy to measure the therapeutic effect or to evaluate implanted biomaterials.
Thus, this MRI system provides a reliable diagnosis and follow up of certain diseases, allowing the evaluation of state-of-the-art health technologies and their benefits and helping to establish their clinical indications.
