SOMATOM X.ceed is a high-resolution, high-speed, low-dose CT scanner with the category-best imaging chain. With the unique guidance of myExam Companion and myNeedle Companion it enables excellent clinical decisions in the most challenging clinical situations – and elite performance of CT and personnel. Find out how you can expand precision medicine and improve patient experience with SOMATOM X.ceed.
SOMATOM X.ceed exceeds excellence in computed tomography with:
Features & Benefits
Intelligent navigation for enhanced consistency
No matter the user, patient, or throughput, our Companions guide users through even time-critical procedures, including emergencies and CT interventions. This helps them interact easily, naturally, and precisely with both patient and technology.
Explore how myNeedle Companion with SOMATOM X.ceed simplifies targeted needle placement even in complex cases.
Further highlights at a glance
Read and scan in parallel
Film, create results, or read on a myExam Satellite client while work continues uninterrupted at the scanner.
Automated assistance for more accurate triage of hemorrhagic cases
Helps spot bleeding and prioritize a non-contrast scan by detecting and flagging up suspected intracranial hemorrhage.
Skull fractures and surface hematomas at a glance
Automatically displays the whole skull and brain surface in fewer unfolded ready-to-read images on one screen.
Fast and tidy data access in ED
Trauma data sets are automatically filed and loaded in dedicated layouts according to the anatomical region.
A whole new way to operate the scanner
Stay close to patients and keep an eye on them even when they are inside the gantry. Operate the scanner efficiently. And position every patient accurately with the FAST 3D Camera.
More control, less miscommunication
Interact with the software and system via easy-to-learn no-look tablet gestures, the i-joystick, and a full-size in-room monitor.
Simplify planning and guiding needle procedures
myNeedle Guide 2D and 3D support planning, navigation, and monitoring basic in-plane or double-angulated procedures.
Powerful, fully integrated option
Automatic projection of the needle entry point and insertion angle, even in advanced double-angulated procedures with multiple needle paths.
Patient-friendly design with an 82 cm bore
A more natural communication with patients and our Mobile Workflow help patients relax and ease tension or anxiety – in combination with the large bore and enhanced accessibility of the new multi-purpose table.
Listen to our patient Francisco Javier Cubo and his experience during a CT scan.
Find out how low our new multi-purpose table can be lowered for easy patient access.
The extra space helps enhance patient comfort even for obese patients, allows easy positioning of patients with reduced mobility, and offers more space for interventional procedures.
Impression of a bigger space
The lights create a comfortable environment and entertain your little patients. The scanner funnel lights also create the impression of a bigger space.
Easy-to-follow visual instructions
The intuitive color-coded Visual Patient Instruction (VPI) helps patients comply easily with breath-hold commands and ease the scanning procedure for hearing-impaired patients.
Consistent standards across your institution
myExam Companion, myNeedle Companion, and Shui® – the design system of Siemens Healthineers – provide users with common interfaces across multiple modalities. Combined with our digital solutions, they can help you redefine and standardize protocols across your institution, optimizing clinical workflow, staffing schedules, results, and productivity.
Listen to what PD Dr. med. Matthias May has to say about the strengths of SOMATOM X.ceed with myExam Companion in emergency radiology.
Elite performance from door to diagnosis
While most CT systems excel in power, scan speed, spatial resolution, or temporal resolution, they compromise at least one of the other metrics. SOMATOM X.ceed benchmarks the category with an optimal combination of high temporal and spatial resolution, power, and scan speed designed to master the most challenging clinical situations at low dose. myExam Companion offers radiology teams automated guidance throughout. The result? Elite performance of both CT and personnel.
High native temporal resolution based on the 0.25-sec. rotation time, which sets a new benchmark in single-source CT
HR: 74 bpm
CTDIvol: 7.7 mGy
DLP: 131 mGy*cm
