Features & Benefits

Intelligent navigation for enhanced consistency

myExam Companion is a new approach to CT scan machine operation, designed to make technologists’ work easier and more efficient.

  • Interactive guidance: myExam Companion guides users through procedures via intuitive interfaces, using a simple, natural language and visuals that are easy to follow – even on unfamiliar CT scan machines.
  • Patient-specific support: The CT system optimizes acquisition and reconstruction parameters for the individual patient, so users can focus better on the patient and on consistent acquisition.
  • Comprehensive, consistent results: This intelligent imaging technology works with technologists to unlock the full potential of high-end features, which helps reduce unwarranted variations.

Patient-friendly design with an 82 cm bore

SOMATOM X.cite is designed to transform how patients interact with both technologists and the CT scan machine – and how they perceive their care.

  • Patient-centric features: The large, 82 cm bore and Patient Observation Camera are designed specifically to help both patients and users relax. Ideal for obese patients and trauma, orthopedic or interventional procedures.
  • More time for patients: myExam Companion performs key tasks in the background so that users can focus better on their patients. The tablet-based mobile workflow maximizes the time users they spend table-side.
  • Support for compliance: Enhanced interfaces like the Visual Patient Instruction (VPI) and the Patient Observation Camera can improve compliance by making communication with the patient easier and more natural.

Personalized imaging for consistent, comprehensive results

Comprehensive information can help radiologists with assessment, etc. – no matter the patient or procedure.

  • Intelligent user guidance: myExam Companion helps technologists tailor acquisition to the individual patient.
  • High power and resolution: The Vectron® X-ray tube and the StellarInfinity detector® are part of an outstanding imaging chain that makes SOMATOM X.cite uniquely equipped to improve personalization.
  • Comprehensive information, no matter what: myExamCompanion calculates coronary segmentations, and spine and rib unfolding, with zero clicks.


Consistent standards across your institution

With transparent and consistent CT throughput, fleet managers can set their own diagnostic benchmarks.

  • Centralized consistency: With myExam Companion and the teamplay cloud application, you can redefine and standardize protocols from one central location.
  • Standardization without disruption: With centralized access, standardizing protocols across your institution doesn’t have to disrupt daily CT operations.
  • Sharing made simple: With a shared visual logic and scan philosophy, it’s easy to optimize clinical workflow, staffing schedules, results and productivity.

Clinical Use

Begona Sara
"We love the new workflow: the automatic patient positioning, the simplified tablet UI and the amazing reconstruction speed." Begoña Sara, Nurse
Clínica Universidad de Navarra, Pamplona, Spain
Francisco Javier Cubo
“I had more room and didn’t feel so trapped than in previous exams, and the scan went much faster. The visual guidance made me feel more confident despite my hearing issues.” Francisco Javier Cubo, Oncological patient
Clínica Universidad de Navarra, Pamplona, Spain
Dr. Sebastian Winklhofer
“Excellent image quality especially in regards to challenging CT applications like low radiation dose, image contrast for low kV, and high resolution imaging e.g. for temporal bone imaging.” PD Dr. Sebastian F.-X. Winklhofer, M.D. Senior Physician
University Hospital Zurich, Zurich, Switzerland
