Electro Beam Tomography (EBT)
Unlike conventional CT scanners, there are no moving parts in the EBT imaging chain. This results in EBT scan times as fast as 50 milliseconds (1/20th of a second), far faster than the speed attainable with the most rapid conventional CT scanner. In cases where speed is essential, such as in the imaging of a moving object, e.g., the beating heart, this scan speed has brought the EBT scanner recognition within the medical community as the "GOLD STANDARD."
The speed of the EBT scanner provides an additional significant benefit to the customer- reduced radiation exposure. A study presented in November 2000 at the 86th Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting of the Radiological Society of North America demonstrated that the radiation dose from a coronary artery study using a multi-slice detector CT scanner (the fastest conventional CT scanner) was more than ten times the dose for the same study performed with an EBT scanner.
Early Detection of Disease, While the annual physical is still important, early detection can reveal asymptomatic and often life-threatening diseases generally not detectable by physical exams or standard-screening tests. This permits for the management of disease in early stages, where medical therapy and treatment options are typically less costly, less invasive and more effective.
