What could photon-counting CT mean for the future of imaging?

MUSC discusses its experiences with the NAEOTOM Alpha CT system

NAEOTOM Alpha with Quantum Technology is the first photon-counting CT in clinical use.

The NAEOTOM Alpha with Quantum Technology will redefine CT imaging. 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.

As part of their Value Partnership, MUSC and Siemens Healthineers have collaborated to advance CT technology – including, most recently, the research and development of the world’s first photon-counting CT, the NAEOTOM Alpha.

With this new system, MUSC can potentially enable more confident decision-making, particularly for those patients who couldn’t be scanned with high confidence, such as patients with high calcium burden, coronary stents, and many others.
