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.


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

 

 

The 78-cm bore and robust table enable easy positioning

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.

Pediatric scanning at the lowest possible dose.

Gently scan the dose-sensitive ones

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

High image quality, fast reconstruction and post-processing for efficient trauma handling.

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.


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

 

 

This filtered scans reduces CT dose to X-ray levels.

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.

Long dynamic ranges of up to 48 cm allow scanning of all anatomical regions to generate dynamic information.

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.

TwinBeam Dual Energy acquires body imaging at two different energy levels in a single scan.

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.
 


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

 

 

Benefit from easy, standardized positioning.

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.

Individualize care with smart automation.

Get closer to your patients

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

Optimize your scanner workflow in terms of standardization, quality, speed, and dose.

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!
