The new Philips Incisive CT takes up to 128 diagnostic slices. The gantry can be lowered to the floor and accommodate patients weighing up to 400 pounds. “The system will allow our staff to give residents of Wilson County access to the same innovations they find in San Antonio without having to travel there,” said hospital Chief Executive Officer Bob Gillespie.
