SOMATOM Edge Plus Sliding Gantry
What if you would increase process efficiency by using Sliding gantry CT?
  • What if you would increase process efficiency by using Sliding Gantry CT?
    The CT gantry slides on rails over the patient, so table and accessories remain stationary.
  • What if you went beyond precise patient positioning?
    - Imaging for brachytherapy without patient and applicator motion
    - Evaluation of anatomical changes and replanning to support adaptive concepts in particle therapy
  • A successful story of strategic partnership between Siemens Healthineers and Varian: CT Sliding gantry in Varian PT room
