Improved functions spice up contrast media injector’s capabilities

The CT motion Spicy contrast media injector, designed to enable faster and more efficient workflow, was presented for the first time at the European Congress of Radiology annual meeting in Vienna. With the Spicy model, ulrich medical has equipped its CT motion system with new software and hardware functions.

Under the motto ‘Spice up your workflow’ innovations include increased pressure and flow performance to enable examinations with high flow rates and high contrast media viscosities. With the CDadapt function, the contrast media density can be adjusted automatically and as required on a percentage basis. This enables a simpler workflow, for example in cardiac examinations, while the lower consumption of media reduces costs. The remainders in the containers are easily recognisable via a light system and can also be read accurately. For high patient throughput, the CT motion Spicy can now be set up with large containers totalling up to two litres of contrast media and up to two litres of saline solution.

Vice president of technology and regulation Sven Erdmann explained: “We managed to implement the innovations within a short space of time at our Ulm location and equip our CT motion Spicy with them. Users particularly like the CDadapt function, as it allows for quick and easy adjustment of contrast media density.”

Other features include digital interfaces and automated injection protocols. This means automatic recognition of data from the media label and subsequent transfer of the parameters to the PACS using a barcode reader is now possible. With the new XD 8151 pump tubing, setting up the CT motion Spicy is more convenient since two steps are saved during insertion.
