Siemens Healthineers has presented its new computed tomography (CT) scanner portfolio, which covers all major requirements and customer needs regarding CT imaging. With its innovative workflow technologies, the portfolio’s four new CT scanners help deliver a new level of standardized, high-quality examinations that support clinical users on their way to precision medicine, while potentially improving patient satisfaction.
The two new scanners in the SOMATOM go. platform – SOMATOM go.All and SOMATOM go.Top – expand the mobile workflow into advanced clinical fields such as cardiology and CT-guided intervention. This mobile workflow enables the technologist to remain closer to the patient during exam preparation and the actual scan. With its high-end systems for single- and dual-source imaging – SOMATOM Edge Plus, SOMATOM Drive, and SOMATOM Force – Siemens Healthineers is introducing to the CT market the new, innovative FAST (Fully Assisting Scanner Technologies) Integrated Workflow with the brand-new FAST 3D Camera. Using artificial intelligence and deep learning technology, the camera automatically facilitates precise, consistent isocentric positioning of patients. By enabling the potential for fewer rescans, the potential for lower costs may be realized.
“We believe that our new scanner portfolio is the best possible answer to the very different challenges in computed tomography – in particular, to the simultaneous issues of growing patient numbers and declining reimbursement rates,” said André Hartung, head of computed tomography at Siemens Healthineers. “With our innovative technologies, we can contribute to the success of health care providers by helping them tap the full potential of CT and to offer high-quality examinations while also reducing costs.”
