Low-dose Computed Technology

KNI/Southwest Michigan Imaging Center, in cooperation with Borgess Health, has introduced new low-dose computed tomography (CT) scan technology that can decrease patient radiation exposure by 30 to 60 percent.

The technology is available at CTs at Borgess Medical Center, Borgess at Woodbridge, and Borgess Westside Lab and Radiology.

Previously, it wasn't possible to lower radiation levels without sacrificing image quality. Now, KNI's low-dose scanners utilize state-of-the-art software that filters out random noise and enhances structures. The new Adaptive Statistical Iterative Reconstruction (ASIR) technology works with GE's 64-slice CT scanner and allows radiologists to reduce the noise in an image and improve image quality while significantly reducing the radiation dose. ASIR is a new and important step in the refinement of CT technology.

KNI is the largest provider of imaging services in Southwestern Michigan, offering a number of MRI and CT services that are only available through Borgess and KNI. Physicians at Premier Radiology work with KNI and Borgess to provide results to physicians who order the tests for their patients.
