This is How Fast a CT Machine Spins at Max Speed
I only know three things about CT machines: They’re loud, they’re expensive, and the images they produce can be useful to people far smarter than me. And after watching this, I now know they spin incredibly fast (considering how heavy the components inside appear to be).
According to the YouTube description this is a Canon Aquilion going at full speed with its cover off.
A technician was doing some small repairs on this CT and the hospital staff asked if they could take it for a spin while it’s cover plate was removed.Clearly balancing the weight distribution inside the machine is quite important!
