Philips XperCT 3D reconstruction software brings CT-like imaging to interventional systems. You can assess soft tissue, bone structure, stent deployment, and tumor feeders. You can also use it to help avoid structures during procedures.
XperCT Dual is a new version of XperCT, which allows two scans to be made on the Allura system at a defined interval. High resolution, high contrast images are reconstructed four times faster to support fast decisions during procedures
Versatile interventional tool supports various procedures
Provides CT-like images to support diagnosis, planning, interventions, and follow up. XperCT can be used with Philips Allura 3D-RA to visualize soft tissue and vascular anatomy on one image. It can also be used with Philips XperGuide option for live needle guidance anywhere in the body.
Philips XperCT uses the Allura Xper FD20’s rotational angiography feature to acquire the images. Advanced acquisition protocols support neuro and body applications, delivering high-quality 3D reconstructions in less than a minute. By default, acquisition is at maximum field of view, but you can switch to collimation to reduce the X-dose and reconstruction time.

Acquire 3D data sets at two moments
The DualPhase acquisition allows two 3D data sets to be acquired with a defined delay between them. This can be useful, for instance, to acquire the arterial and post-arterial contrast enhancement in oncologic interventions.
3D visualization || Versatile 3D visualization
3D visualization for slice and volume viewing
The image data can be visualized as a regular CT image with 3D volume viewing in any orientation. Other 3D features include slice viewing in any orientation and at any slice thickness from 0.5 mm up. Cut-plane functionality provides information on anatomical structure. A unique Reconstructive Zoom Technique is available for high-resolution applications.

The DualView functionality allows two 3D data sets acquired at different times of the procedure to be displayed side-by-side. In this DualView, XperCT Dual allows the parallel assessment of the two phases of the procedure.

Reduces metal artifacts
XperCT Dual provides an unique Metal Artifact Reduction filter, which significantly reduces the scattering artifacts in XperCT Dual images that can result from visualization around metal implants, coils, or stainless steel stents.
Assess soft tissue and bone structure || KBA4
Assess soft tissue and bone structure
Physicians can use the CT-like images of XperCT Dual to assess soft tissue, bone structure, and stent deployment before, during, and after interventional procedures. This aids in avoiding structures and identifying feeder vessels.
Multimodality overlays for more insig... || KBA4
Multimodality overlays for more insight
During Live Image Guidance, the 3D reconstructions from XperCT Dual or from other previously acquired data, such MRI, CT, and PET/CT volumes can be overlaid with live fluoroscopy to provide additional anatomical insight.
*The DualPhase functionality is available with Allura systems release 8.2 or higher. It allows XperCT to perform two rotational scans with a user defined delay between them.
