Efficient System Design
Most compact gantry 68,5 cm
The Ultra Fast Ceramic (UFC™) Detector system is the central part of all Siemens’ CT scanners. Speed, image quality, and low dose are what Siemens UFC detectors make possible. Siemens’ ceramic UFC scintillators excel in fast decay behavior and an extremely short afterglow time.
CARE Dose 4D
The tube current is adapted in real-time and according to the anatomy of each individual patient’s organ. CARE Dose4D provides up to 68%* dose reduction compared to fixed mA examinations.
SureView facilitate consistent image quality at any pitch, even for long scans. Easy-to-use scan protocols are available, where the user only needs to select the scan range, mAs, scan time, and slice width. All other parameters are automatically calculated by the scanner.
Outstanding overall system uptime due to robust design and stability. The tube of the SOMATOM Spirit regularly achieves 10,000 scans – and more – without a single failure. High power reserves with up to 40 kW generator power and 3.5 MHU tube are especially useful with corpulent patients.
