THE MOST ADVANCED SYSTEM OF AXIAL TOMOGRAPHY: SOMOTOM Definition 128 slices/sec

It is the only CT scanner that carries out 128 slices/sec (64x2), because it applies dual energy technology (two lights and two detectors rows). All other systems (using only one X-ray source and one detector) can carry out only 16,32,64 incisions.

It only takes 83 m/sec for the creation of an incision; that's half the time previous generation scanners needed.

Reduced exposure to radiation, of up to 50%.

Faster than the heartbeat, producing perfectly clear images of the heart, with zero blur.

Briefly, SOMOTOM is ideal for:

  • Non-invasive coronary angiography
  • Pulmonary embolism
  • Investigation of severe chest pain
  • Investigation of congenital heart disease
  • Monitoring patients after By-Pass
  • Study of patients with endovascular stents
  • Study of patients with myocardial infarction
  • The patient is discharged from the catheterization procedure for graft monitoring.
