SCENARIA combines the latest dose saving technologies* with enhanced patient
access features and rapid workflow in a 128-slice model that meets today’s
need for a CT system that provides both routine and advanced applications with
enhanced performance and value.

Because SCENARIA is a scalable platform, the Advanced 128 features are also
available as a field upgrade for the SCENARIA 64-slice model.

“SCENARIA is another example of Hitachi’s ability to provide superior product
value by combining the latest dose saving and imaging technologies with a
premium feature set that includes a standard 2 meter scannable range table
with greater than 500 lb. weight capacity and unique lateral shift capability
(16cm range) to center the patient’s anatomy of interest nearest to the scan
iso-center,” said Mark Silverman, Director of CT Marketing.

“The SCENARIA Advanced 128 model is an important achievement as Hitachi
continues to expand the breadth of our CT Product line and installation
foot-print in the US Market,” said Sheldon Schaffer, VP & General Manager
MR/CT.

* In clinical use, dose saving features may reduce CT patient dose depending
on the clinical task, patient size, anatomical location and clinical practices
employed. Consultation with a radiologist and physicist are recommended to
determine the appropriate dose needed to obtain diagnostic image quality for a
particular clinical task.
