Pirate-themed CT Scanner Will Scan Your Pirate Booty

by Conner Flynn

It can be scary to get a CT scan, whether you are an adult or a kid. God only knows what that radiation is doing to you. What if you end up like the Hulk? To ease the fears of children who need to endure a trip through the machine, New York-Presbyterian Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital is one place to go.

They are one of the largest children’s hospitals in the country and so they felt it was up to them to make sure they were administering the lowest doses of radiation possible to the kids, so they picked up one of GE’s Adventure Series CT scanners – this one in a pirate theme. (They also make jungle, underwater, summer camp and space themed scanners.)

In addition to the scanner, the entire scanning suite is pirate-themed. Arrrr! Let’s all do it. Free scans on me! Wait. How much? Okay, everybody just enjoy the images. On me.

    This scanner is awesome. But this story is a bit misleading. GE has had its “Adventure Series” of CT and MRI scanners available since 2011. We have had the same scanner and pirate theme here at Brenner Children’s Hospital for over a year. To see the whole product line, just Google: GE adventure series filetype:pdf (My favorite is the space themed MRI, sweet!!)
