Photon counting CT (PCCT) technology

NAEOTOM Alpha®
with Quantum Technology

CT redefined.

CT_NAEOTOM_Alpha_01_IMAGE_21_1

We are proud to introduce the world’s first photon-counting CT. NAEOTOM Alpha® with Quantum Technology is nothing less than the total reinvention of computed tomography.

Based on the revolutionary direct signal conversion of its QuantaMax detector, NAEOTOM Alpha offers high-resolution images at minimal dose, spectral information in every scan, and improved contrast at lower noise.

Benefit from a range of clinical options and breakthrough consistency never seen before – for confident clinical decision-making and the potential to scan previously excluded patients.

Experience a defining moment in computed tomography.

 

Welcome to the era of photon-counting

With photon-counting CT, we have developed a radically new technology for clinical routine. At its core is a new kind of detector that is substantially different from a standard energy-integrating detector.

These photon-counting detectors have the potential to overcome the limitations of current CT detectors, by providing CT data at high spatial resolution, without electronic noise, and with inherent spectral information.

 

Pulmonology

NAEOTOM Alpha offers an easy and streamlined way to get quantitative information in addition to morphology. By matching the appropriate protocols to patients and by combining all necessary acquisitions into a single scan, NAEOTOM Alpha enables smart navigation through the diagnostic pathway.
