Freeze motion when your patient can't

Freeze motion when your patient can't

Some patients are unable to follow any commands. The SOMATOM Edge Plus delivers motion-artifact-free images when every second counts.

Features & Benefits

To efficiently make reliable diagnostic decisions, you need low-dose images rich in detail – from every patient. That’s why SOMATOM Edge Plus offers exceptional power reserves and speed, intelligent automation, dose-neutral Dual Energy and quantitative imaging.


Changing views on patient diversity – with personalized scanning

Scan virtually all patients with diagnostic confidence – including bariatrics, pediatrics, and patients unable to cooperate.

 

 

Get powerful images of obese patients

With SOMATOM Edge Plus, you can obtain sharp and rich-in-contrast images at high speed and low dose even with large patients.

Gently scan the dose-sensitive ones

Allow low-dose scans for children with High Power at low kV and integrated CARE Child technology.

Freeze motion when your patient can't

Excellent image quality within seconds for emergency cases due to the combination of High Power reserves with high coverage of up to 230 mm/s in clinical routine.


Changing views on clinical paradigms – with advanced imaging

Gain new diagnostic insights like functional information and tissue characterization, acquired with no dose or time penalty.

 

 

See more than ever before with tin-filtered scanning

Shield patients from clinically irrelevant dose and use CT for a wider application range with our Tin Filter technology.

Add dynamic imaging to your clinical routine

Make dynamic imaging an everyday method for nearly all patients and anatomical regions at the right dose and contrast-to-noise ratio.

Perform advanced quantitative imaging with no dose penalty

May replace additional non-contrast scans with virtual non-contrast images – backed by our unique TwinBeam Dual Energy technology.
 


Changing views on patient positioning – with automated workflows

Save time and achieve consistent results with smart automation for fast, precise positioning, scanning, and postprocessing.

 

 

Safeguard correct and consistent positioning

Our FAST Integrated Workflow with FAST 3D Camera helps your team acquire first-time right scans and manage tight schedules.
 

Get closer to your patients

Set parameters without leaving your patients and offer them individual care with our Touch Panels on eye-level.

Simplify preparation of patients and scanner

Accelerate workflows and lower dose, helping you optimize process efficiency and improve patient outcome with our software packages.

Clinical Use

Get CT scans with high contrast at all times: SOMATOM Edge Plus delivers low-dose images without compromising on image quality – for every individual. But see for yourself!

Lung scan of an extremely obese 44-year-old patient

The large bore and robust table allow easy positioning of obese patients. High power and 10 kV Steps deliver high image quality at the right dose.

Thorax, abdomen, pelvis scan of a two-year-old child after trauma

The CTDIvol is just 1.09 mGy – thanks to low-kV scanning, the StellarInfinity detector, and dedicated child protocols.
