LightSpeed VCT Recognized by WSJ

The Wall Street Journal (no link - reg required) awared GE's LightSpeed VCT a "Technology Innovation Award". This bad boy can image the heart in 3D in under 5 seconds. Seriously impressive.

The LightSpeed VCT also has the capability to attain 43-millisecond temporal resolution, which means physicians can effectively freeze the motion of the heart in a scan and secure extremely high-quality images of coronary arteries at submillimeter. As a result, GE's LightSpeed VCT enables physicians to capture images of the heart and coronary arteries in just five heartbeats - something no other CT system can offer.
