About GOPView CT
ContextVision’s proprietary GOP® technology, an adaptive algorithm, enables GOPView CT to enhance CT output images, leading to greater diagnostic confidence. Additionally, in some implementations, users may use a lower patient dose and achieve a comparable image quality. Several clinical studies have shown that images enhanced using GOPView CT show finer details than images created with normal CT doses and can reduce dose levels by 30 to 70%. This type of dose reduction benefits both patents and hospitals. For patients, the low dose translates to less risk without sacrificing image quality or diagnosis accuracy. Hospitals using GOPView CT in this manner will experience decreased wear and tear on X-ray tubes.
