Patient Positioning Aid

Patient Positioning Aid. Poor image quality caused by patient movement is a common problem with diagnostic imaging. The diagnostic Vac-Lok cushion reduces patient movement resulting in clearer images. For clearer images of the head and neck region,an optional head cushion is also available. "Modern highresolutionPET/CT scanners require easy-to-use, accuratepatient positioning devices that ensure optimal image quality, maximise patient throughput and minimise radiationexposure to the technologist," says Dr Townsend, Director of the Cancer Imaging and Tracer Development Research Programme at the University of Tennessee Medical Centre,USA. Cushion set-up involves simply wrapping the cushion around the patient and using a vacuum to draw the air out, making the positioning bag a rigid cradle for the anatomical area to be immobilised throughout an imaging procedure. After the procedure is complete, the cushion can be re-inflated, cleaned and reused.Patient Positioning Aid
