Computed Tomography for CardiologyYou think ahead. We innovate ahead.

Welcome to the forefront of innovation in cardiology, where Computed Tomography emerges as a pivotal tool in the battle against cardiovascular diseases, which are responsible for almost one-third of global deaths1. At the heart of diagnostic imaging, CT plays a significant role in addressing the complexities of cardiac cases, from early detection and diagnostic support to personalized therapy and follow-up. 

In the dynamic realm of cardiology, where accuracy and speed are paramount, Siemens Healthineers delivers one-of-a-kind imaging solutions. Offering a comprehensive suite of solutions from precise anatomical imaging to functional assessments, our CT systems support cardiologists to make informed decisions with confidence. 

As pioneers in cardiac CT solutions, we invite you to explore state-of-the-art technologies and witness firsthand how our solutions are shaping the future of cardiology.

Cardiac CT made easy with innovative technologies

White papers 


CT NAEOTOM Alpha Cardiac Whitepaper Preview no background

Reaching more cardiovascular patients with photon-counting CT 

NAEOTOM Alpha with Quantum Technology®, our revolutionary photon-counting CT, delivers Quantum HD Cardiac images with 0.2 mm slice thickness. This breakthrough technology not only visualizes previously undetectable details in the heart but does so without dose penalty. Dive deeper into the benefits of photon-counting technology for cardiac CT by downloading our white paper, a comprehensive insight to this quantum leap in cardiac imaging.

CT ZeeFree Cardiac Whitepaper Preview

Optimal Cardiac CT imaging with ZeeFree

Explore further in this white paper how the novel reconstruction feature enables optimal cardiac imaging independent of the detector width.

CT FAST Bolus Cardiac Whitepaper Preview

What is FAST Bolus? 

FAST Bolus delivers personalized scan timing for aortic CT angiographies by taking into account the CT settings, the injection protocol, and the patient's physiological characteristics during scanning. This optimized scan timing leads to increased contrast enhancement, optimized use of contrast media and potentially fewer non-diagnostic scans. This white paper describes the clinical background and challenges of contrast-enhanced scans, explain how FAST Bolus works, and discusses the clinical proofs, and several clinical cases.

CT Temporal Resolution Cardiac Whitepaper Preview

When real temporal resolution matters

High native temporal resolution is a fundamental image quality parameter of cardiac CT. Only with a high temporal resolution is it possible to resolve fast-moving objects (e.g., the heart). Explore why real temporal resolution matters in this white paper.
