Dual Source CT-Radiology News
Siemens Medical Solutions unveiled the world's first dual source computed tomography (CT) system, a breakthrough that will redefine the role of CT. Siemens has pushed the technical and clinical boundaries of CT with this latest innovation, the Somatom Definition, which is faster than every beating heart and capable of imaging full cardiac detail with as much as 50 percent less radiation exposure compared to traditional CT scans.
The Somatom Definition is faster than any existing CT technology. This dual source CT system uses two X-ray sources and two detectors at the same time, compared to all other CT systems that use only one source and detector. It will provide clearer, more detailed images, lead to a wider ranger of clinical applications, and ultimately produce a higher quality of patient care.
