Computed Tomography for OncologyYou think ahead. We innovate ahead.

Cancer incidence is on the rise: by 2030, there will be almost 20 million new cases per year.1 Thanks to its ability to provide ever more detailed and precise images, Computed Tomography is a key player in the comprehensive management of cancer patients – from initial diagnosis to treatment planning, monitoring, and follow-up

You think ahead in advancing cancer care. We innovate ahead with technologies that support you throughout the entire patient pathway. Explore how it can help you provide state-of-the-art care to your oncology patients.

Siemens Healthineers also builds on the strength of Dual Energy, which permits visualization, characterization, and quantification of various materials in greater detail than traditional scans. This is why our CT scanner portfolio is designed to have meaningful Dual Energy capabilities: fully integrated into the acquisition workflow without additional effort by operators – and offering PACS-ready results with customizable and fully automated reconstructions.

Advancing lung cancer screening with CT

In the case of lung cancer, early detection is absolutely crucial. Siemens Healthineers portfolio of CT scanners is optimized to help you accomplish just that. Our mobile solutions allow to bring lung cancer screening right to you, with a CT scanner that is installed inside a vehicle, trailer, or container. This helps improve access to care, for example in rural areas. Since lung cancer screening requires frequent CT scans, cumulative dose levels are a key consideration as well.

Our CT portfolio is equipped with Tin Filter: a unique technology that cuts out lower energies to reduce dose and optimize image quality. Download this white paper to learn more about the distinct benefits of this technology when it comes to detecting pulmonary nodules.

Boosting CT-guided interventions and radiation therapy with CT

Minimally invasive ablation procedures in cancer cases are projected to increase by 8% per year between 2020 and 2030.2 While biopsies will remain the core application, therapeutic procedures are expected to become much more important due to the obvious advantages of minimally invasive therapy: fewer complications, faster recovery times, and shorter hospital stays. Our portfolio of CT scanners and advanced technologies supports you in both routine and complex CT-guided interventions – helping you plan needle paths and providing visual guidance to help you reach the target area. Studies suggest that advanced technologies such as our integrated laser guidance system have the potential to increase efficiency, reduce radiation dose, and improve accuracy.3 Giving you full in-room control over relevant parameters, our solutions aim to streamline workflows and increase efficiency.


Around 40% of cancer patients will undergo radiation therapy as part of their cancer treatment.4 CT plays a pivotal role, as the CT planning image is the foundation of the whole radiation therapy workflow. Our portfolio for radiation therapy planning is optimally suited to help you achieve consistent imaging results even in moving anatomy. Thanks to Direct i4D technology, you can reduce breathing artifacts, capture detailed images of lesions, and ensure precise organ contouring with the support of AI tools.
