Radiology Design Commission for GE Optima CT660 Awarded to Architecture for Radiology

Architecture for Radiology (the only architecture firm in the world focused exclusively on radiology design and construction) has been selected to design a CT Room Design project in Manhattan.

The project includes the design and construction of a CT suite for the new GE Optima CT660.

Architecture for Radiology has been on the forefront of radiology design, including CT room design, since the firm’s founding. The GE Optima CT660 is a state of the art CT, with very high resolutions, advantages for use in many specialties (such as cardiology, oncology), and state of the art radiation reduction.

The project is part of a larger, multi-modality radiology center, also designed by Architecture for Radiology.
