October 1st, 2021, marks 50 years since the first computed tomography scan of a human patient was performed on a scanner designed by Sir Godfrey Hounsfield. To celebrate, we’re traveling through time to see just how far computed tomography has come. Watch the video for a thrilling look at how CT technology has advanced. After such rapid and dramatic technological advancement, progress has slowed. See how Siemens Healthineers will reignite the pace of innovation and redefine CT for the next era with the world's first photon-counting system.
What photon-counting 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.
