The new computed tomography (CT) scanner, the Somatom Perspective, is particularly efficient in operation. This scanner is the first to offer eMode functionality. It determines the best correlation between dose, cost efficiency and image quality and adjusts the required scan parameters automatically. The system’s operation can thus be optimised for the individual scan, for example in terms of tube current or scan velocity. This option relieves wear and tear on the CT and increases its life span. Special service offerings and even the design of the scanner help keep down overall operating costs. Suited to cover all clinical fields, including cardiaovascular studies, this CT scanner allows clinics and practices to extend their range of available examinations even where budgets are tight. With this new scanner, Siemens further extends its portfolio for the middle price segment. The scanner will be available from the second quarter of 2012.
