During the National Day(October 1st to 7th) in 2021, Campo Imaging’s Precision 128 CT was officially installed and used in Pudong Hospital Affiliated to Fudan University. The device has withstood the test of a large number of patients once it was put into use, and repeatedly broke the scanning record, with a maximum of 355 person-times and 510 parts scanned in a single day. Two months after the equipment kept running at full capacity with a large scanning volume, there were many new confirmed cases of Covid-19 in Shanghai. The emergency response mechanism for epidemic prevention and control in the city and district was activated immediately, and many hospitals issued announcements to suspend outpatient and emergency service. Immediately, Campo Imaging’s Precision 128 CT was ordered under such circumstances, and the hospital moved it to the fever clinic for the scanning and diagnosis of suspected cases of Covid-19. Campo Imaging’s Precision 128 CT continued to live up to its mission, and together with the medical staff on the front line of epidemic prevention and control in the hospital, we firmly guarded the well-being of local people and ushered in a phased victory.


Pudong Hospital Affiliated to Fudan University (A.K.A Shanghai Pudong Hospital) is a large-scale comprehensive public hospital integrating medical treatment, teaching, scientific research, prevention, health care and rehabilitation. It is the first general hospital in Shanghai to pass the JCI (5th edition) certification. The hospital covers an area of 230 mu, with a construction area of 94,000 square meters, 1,000 approved beds, and 1,020 actually opened. The hospital has 32 clinical medical technology departments, with an annual outpatient and emergency department volume of 2.1495 million, inpatient volume of more than 49,300, and operation volume of more than 26,700. As an affiliated hospital of Fudan University and a regional medical center, Pudong Hospital is actively building a modern general hospital with high standard, high efficiency and humaneness with the connotation of tertiary hospital quality service and the level of first-class university affiliated hospital.


The Radiology Department of Pudong Hospital Affiliated to Fudan University has 3.0T MRI, 1.5T MRI, dual-source CT, multiple 128-slice CT and other advanced medical equipment at home and abroad. Professor Liu Xinjiang, director of the Department of Radiology, said: The Pudong Hospital Affiliated to Fudan University is located in the core area of the "two ports and four districts" in Pudong New Area, serving a population of 1.26 million, and the number of patients has always been relatively large. Campo Imaging’s Precision 128 CT equipment has stable operation and excellent images, and has withstood the test of a large amount of scanning, especially its technical advantages in volume tomography, precision tomography, and energy spectrum imaging, which have brought clinical diagnosis to a new height. Cao Menghong, a radiology technologist, said: The Campo Imaging’s service team has fast response and excellent service. In order not to delay the order of diagnosis and treatment, maintenance and other work are arranged in the second half of the night, so as to fully consider the users.




Clinical application


Volume Tomography


Conventional tomography has high resolution but 3D reconstruction has artifacts. Spiral scan 3D reconstruction has no artifacts but the resolution is not as high as tomography. Precision 128 CT volume tomography can achieve both the high resolution of conventional tomography and 3D reconstruction without artifacts.

Precise Tomography


Precision 128 CT's precision tomography technology combines hardware and software technology, scanning and reconstruction technology to achieve an ultra-thin layer thickness of 0.3125mm between layers, and has excellent image quality in the diagnosis of chest and ear diseases.

 

Case1: Male, 57 years old, IAC with invasive adenocarcinoma of the left lower lobe.

 

1mm reconstruction showed ground-glass density film under the pleura in the dorsal segment of the left lower lobe, precise 0.3125mm thin scan showed solid components in the center, ground-glass density in the periphery, the relationship with the adjacent blood vessels, and the adjacent pleural traction and other changes The display is clearer, and the diagnosis of benign and malignant lesions is more clear.


 

Case 2: Female, 55 years old, with bilateral otitis media and perforation of the right tympanic membrane.

 

The bilateral mastoids are poorly pneumotized, showing a barrier type. Soft tissue shadows can be seen in the bilateral tympanic chambers, tympanic sinuses and mastoid cells. There is no compression, displacement and erosion of the auditory ossicles. The tympanic chambers and tympanic sinuses are not enlarged, and there is no inner ear structure. unusual changes. There was no stenosis and enlargement of the bilateral internal auditory canals. Right tympanic membrane thickening, see localized defect.



Spectral Imaging Technology



Conventional CT examination images are images obtained by a series of X-rays acting on the human body, so they are mixed energy images. The interference of different energies may cause artifacts, unstable CT values, and X-ray imaging features that cannot reflect different energies. The energy spectrum imaging technology of Precision 128 CT can obtain single-level images of different X-ray energies from 40keV to 140keV, so as to select the most ideal single-level image according to the different needs of clinical diagnosis.

 

Case: Female, 35 years old, pseudo-color picture of wrist gout

 

No superimposed display of yellow and above color grades was found, identifying no gouty nodule formation.


Since the end of last year, "Campo Imaging Medical Industry-University-Research Shanghai Center" was officially opened in Pudong Hospital Affiliated to Fudan University. A new chapter in collaborative innovation of learning and research applications. In 2022, Campo Imaging Medical will successively launch new products and new technologies of independent innovation, and continue to carry out in-depth cooperation in more fields with Pudong Hospital Affiliated to Fudan University. The two parties will comprehensively promote the optimization and upgrading of precision medical imaging and intelligent diagnosis technology and equipment, and provide better medical imaging technology and services for the people based on Pudong, the country and the Asia-Pacific region.
