Computed Tomography has come a long way in trendsetting innovations like iterative reconstructions, spectral imaging or perfusion scans, which enlarged the diagnostic toolset of CT in oncological imaging.
Innovative CT solutions from Siemens Healthineers provide high-end image quality to help improve diagnostic accuracy. This ranges from ruling out malignancy through accurate staging to providing necessary information for the best treatment planning and control. This enables providing personalized care tailored to the patient’s needs, be it the lowest radiation dose for young patients or fast assessment in pain.
Features & Benefits
Rely on precise imaging
Precise imaging and diagnosis is key for selecting the right treatment as well as monitoring and controlling treatment outcome.
Precision medicine relies on the right imaging during the continuum of care. CT as a versatile, robust but also fast imaging modality can play a key role in expanding precision medicine throughout oncological care. Precision in CT means control of all aspects from acquisition of fast high-resolution images to postprocessing.
In post-processing you profit from automated anatomical oriented MPRs thanks to ALPHA technology as well as advanced visualization like rib unfolding and Rapid Results.
Keep control on exposure
Early detection of cancer is often the main factor in a successful cure. Early detection not only means screening patients with a very high risk of lung or colorectal cancer. In some situations, it also means long-term if not lifetime monitoring during and after therapy. But repetitive CT scans can add a high cumulative radiation exposure. Our innovative solutions like Tin Filter or FAST CARE support you in keeping radiation exposure as low as possible and allow patients to experience the benefit of each scan instead of worrying about radiation. Patients also don’t need to be worried about long scans, especially when they are impaired, e.g., short of breath or under pain management, thanks to fast imaging enabled by FLASH spiral scans and Dual Source CT technology.
Profit from functional imaging
Complex treatments require more information than just diameters. Provide surrogates for biological parameters and quantitative measures with Dual Energy CT and volume perfusion CT (VPCT). With innovations in CT technology that change the way to acquire, process and read such data, access to the results of functional imaging is simpler than ever before.
