Siemens CT Scanner Somatom Definition Flash
Somatom Definition Flash
Redefining standards in Cardiology
When performing a cardiac scan, the main challenge is often posed by the time and effort it takes to prepare the patient. With a scan time of only 0,6 s and a full temporal resolution of 75 ms, the new SOMATOM Definition Flash allows scanning the entire heart and evaluating its morphology and coronaries without any beta blockers. Patients suffering from irregular heart rates or atrial fibrillations benefit from high-end cardiac scanning only taking 250 ms to perform – about a quarter of a heartbeat. Redefining your standards in cardiology with the new SOMATOM Definition Flash will expand your institution’s clinical capabilities, increase outcome quality for your patients, and help you streamline workflows significantly.
Redefining standards in Pediatrics
A key challenge in pediatrics is to get these young patients to hold still. That’s why today’s standard procedure includes intense preparation, sedation, and after-care.The Flash Spiral scan mode combines a scan speed 458mm/s and a temporal resolution of 75 ms – reducing the average examination time to only 0.49 s, in effect allowing you to routinely perform pediatric scans without hazardous sedation. Flash speed and FAST CARE technology make pediatric imaging both easier to use and more patient-friendly – for example, FAST 3D Align automatically optimizes the field of view. Increase your institution’s competitiveness and improve patient outcome by making Flash speed and Dual Source your standard.
Redefining standards in Oncology
In order to provide precise diagnoses, oncology examination is all about recognizing lesions, and visualizing and quantifying tissue. With Dual Source Dual Energy scanning – the only modality that enables DE scanning at doses comparable to a conventional 120 kV scan –, you will be able to get all the information you need in a single scan. Creating virtual non-contrast images based on the Dual Energy information will help you and your institution save time and resources. Dual Energy Optimum Contrast achieves images with very low noise at high contrasts. Enhance your institution’s clinicial capabilities by standardizing dose-neutral Dual Source Dual Energy CT – introducing „two-in-one“ CT scanning for all your patients, and turning imaging information into imaging intelligence with syngo.via applications.
