What this could mean for the future of CT
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.
MUSC and Siemens Healthineers: Advancing Care Quality
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.
"There are so many applications on the horizon that will benefit our patients. I think it will make the medicine that we provide our patients more precise, and it will help us to provide truly patient-centered medicine."1
