FDA has approved Siemens new CT Scanner SOMATOM that can be operated from a tablet and is able to perform faster higher quality image exam

Siemens announced winning FDA clearance for its SOMATOM go. Now and SOMATOM go.Up compute tomography scanners.

The systems are designed to speed patients through the scanning process, utilizing preset workflows that are defined and controlled using a wireless tablet.

Siemens’ latest high-end scanner is a Dual Source technology called SOMATOM® Definition Flash, a scanner that will change radiation dose.

Now available with the fully integrated Stellar Detector, the SOMATOM Definition Flash can benefit from minimized cross-talk and less electronic noise for optimum low-signal imaging.

There are several reasons why the Siemens SOMATOM Sensation 64 CT scanner is one of the most installed 64-slice scanners in the world today – speed, performance and resolution to name just a few. The SOMATOM line is one of the best on the market, and the Sensation 64 model is truly top of the line. It is simply one of the fastest CT scanners you can buy, but its incredible speed does not mean you have to sacrifice image quality. In fact, it offers amazing resolution and with Siemens’ exclusive CARE Dose4D technology you can get that high resolution while at the same time reducing dose by nearly 70%.

Another benefit of the Siemens SOMATOM Sensation 64 CT scanner is the “zero delay” CT workflow. With automatic 3D reconstructions and simultaneous access to raw data, this system will help you scan and diagnose patients faster than ever. That will lead to a more efficient workflow, allowing you to handle more patients while at the same time giving them a more pleasant experience because they will be in and out faster.
