This CT/PET head sponge features a bottom piece that slips out and a holder that has a natural squeezing effect due to the weight of the patients head. The insert helps when scanning heads allowing the user to create a tilt on the head by having it partially inserted. Removing the insert allows it to work for over 80% of patients scanned on a regular basis.
