Clinical Impact of
Ultra-High Resolution CT (UHR CT)
The National Cancer Center Hospital (NCC) in Central Tokyo Japan is the world authority on Ultra-High
Resolution CT, having been working with prototype systems for almost a decade. To bring the NCC vision for routine application of Ultra-High Resolution CT imagingrequired a multitude of creative developments in computer, mechanical, chemical and electronic engineering which have come together in Ultra-High Resolution CT. The long anticipated benefits of being able to resolve anatomy at more than two times the resolution have arrived.

Microcysts within a pancreatic neuro-endocrine tumor are clearly shown with UHR CT imaging, providing a wealth of information regarding the classification and staging of this tumor.

“I am seeing anatomical structures resolved in clear detail
that I never thought would be possible with CT.As radiologists worldwide gain more collective experience
there is an exciting future ahead for the paradigm change
in imaging work-up of cancer guidelines that will become
routine with Ultra-High Resolution CT.”
