Siemens Features Dose-Lowering CT Technology at RSNA 2011

 

October 20, 2011

As an innovative leader in dose reduction, Siemens has long applied a comprehensive approach to all areas of diagnostic and interventional imaging: combined applications to reduce exposure (CARE). Today, Siemens’ CARE standard brings together a wide variety of advanced technologies and applications to meet the needs of patients and physicians for appropriate radiation dose with the best possible outcomes for diagnosis and interventions. Siemens’ FAST (fully assisting scanner technologies) CARE technology makes time-consuming and complex procedures faster and much more intuitive, making scanning reproducible and less prone to errors. With FAST CARE, the Somatom Definition Flash CT system is set to raise the standard of patient-centric productivity.

Additionally at RSNA ’11, Siemens will announce the results of the second International CT Image Contest from 4:30 to 5 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 27 at the Siemens booth. The annual competition invites users worldwide to use their Somatom CT units to their fullest extent and demonstrate their best low-radiation images. Winners in eight categories will be assessed by internationally renowned CT pioneers and experts.
