CT Head Sponge
NEW Revolutionary CT Head sponge. The bottom piece slips out and the holder has a natural squeezing effect due to the weight of the patients head. It is very stable and produces no artifacts. The insert is helpful when scanning heads as it allows the user to create a tilt on the head by having it partially inserted. By removing the insert, it works for over 80% of the patients that you would scan on a regular basis.
Quote from new user:
“Working in a busy CT outpatient center has many demands. The ability to save time is very important! When dealing with a variety of CT exams there is constant table changes. Using a table sponge for head and neck work can save time, not to mention the back. We can leave the table extension attached without changing the cumbersome head holders. The table sponge allows us to move the holder to the patient and not moving the patient to the head holder. Some of the challenges to a good sponge is flexibility, balance, and a protective coating. The flexibility has been answered by sliding the insert and out. Removing the insert allows for a neutral position on majority patients and has added benefit of gently squeezing the head by collapsing inward. This is very helpful for patients that have a tendency to move. Partially inserting the insert allows for the angle recommended by the ACR when scanning heads. Full insertion is helpful for the obese patients. The width of the holder gives a stable balance base to rest on the table to hold the patient position. The ability to clean the holder is very important and the protective coating can be problematic. Artifacts caused by duplicating edges and slight coating differences. This has been addressed by elevating the outer edges and creating a bevel to the inside edge. Techno-Aide has been very helpful and committed to designing a better product that will work. Techno-Aide has responded to our concerns, going above and beyond to satisfy our needs. No sponge holder will work for every situation, but this sponge offers the flexibility needed to accommodate the majority of our needs.”

Sponge Shipping Note: If you are ordering several sponges, consider a kit or ordering via purchase order. Sponges are light weight, however, they require a large box which FedEx/UPS charge by dimensional weight. In most cases we can pack several sponges into a single box. The website cannot be programmed to understand the many ways sponges may be packed.
