Mike Elgan of The Raw Feed, brings to our attention the Somatom Sensation Cardiac 64 system by Siemens. According to the company, its cardiac diagnostic system is the world’s fastest computer tomograph. (We have covered a closely related SOMATOM Sensation 64 CT scanner earlier.)
With our proprietary STRATON X-ray tube as a technological key element, Siemens provides you with the industry’s fastest rotation time of 0.33 s, virtually freezing the heart’s motion. Our 64-slice technology delivers unprecedented diagnostic detail with 0.4 mm isotropic resolution at any scan speed by using our exclusive z-Sharp Technology.
Speed4D™ Technology helps achieve a rapid and efficient cardiovascular workflow which facilitates a complete examination within 10 minutes–from scan to diagnosis. A comprehensive portfolio of leading cardiovascular applications completes the SOMATOM Sensation Cardiac 64 as the ultimate cardiac CT solution.
