Siemens Healthineers SOMATOM On.site

Siemens Healthineers SOMATOM On.site

The SOMATOM On.site is a mobile head computed tomography (CT) scanner from Siemens Healthineers that enables a critically ill patient to receive CT head imaging in the intensive care unit (ICU) while remaining in bed. Performing a CT head examination at the patient’s bedside can eliminate costly transports to the radiology department, which involve high staffing requirements and potential patient risk. With the SOMATOM On.site, Siemens Healthineers enables reliable and consistent image quality at the point of care, allowing customers to transform care delivery. The SOMATOM On.site offers easy scan setup, fast workflow, and integrated patient support accessories, for convenient and consistent patient positioning in the scanner. An intelligent user interface concept, myExam Companion helps the radiologic technologist navigate the examination for consistent results. An integrated drive camera enables real-time viewing on the built-in Touch UI display for easy maneuvering by the technologist. The scanner’s unique telescopic gantry design allows the radiation source to move away from the patient during scanning, while the base and the front cover of the gantry remain stationary. The SOMATOM On.site system design – with the telescopic, self-shielded gantry and attachable front and back radiation shields – reduces scatter radiation compared to CT scanners without this design and provides radiation protection for neighboring patients and staff.
