“Low-dose protocols in endoscopy and ERCP are very significant. We often use protocols at 0.81 μGy/image in 22 cm format (corresponding to 0.41 μGy/image in 48 cm format) and always pulsed fluoroscopy (CAREvision).”
“Adjustment of radiographic image possible without radiation exposure, ‘Super!’ (CAREprofile and CAREposition)”
Dr. Michael Repp, MBA
Klinikum Altenburger Land, Altenburg
“Using CLEAR technology, the system allows for working with the lowest possible amounts of contrast agent with simultaneously high detail recognition of the gastrointestinal tract, especially the pancreaticobiliary ductal system. At the same time the optimized gray scale resolution ensures safe positioning of implants in stenoses of the gastrointestinal tract through certain detection of the stent and its markers.”
Dr. Beate Faust-Herzog
Heinrich-Braun-Krankenhaus GmbH, Kirchberg
“An important aspect in gastroenterology is a non-overexposed fluoroscopy image reproduced 1:1 in the digital image.”
Prof. Ansgar Berlis
"Manufacturers must look after the safety of both patients and medical staff. This type of safety system can determine whether or not a device is selected, which means that manufacturers must treat them as a quality criterion rather than offering them for an additional charge. Who would drive an automobile today without a seatbelt and an airbag?"
"We should be concerned about everyone’s well-being. And if we can generate better images using less radiation, then it makes sense for us to do so."
Prof. Thomas Albrecht
Vivantes Hospital Berlin
"I consider minimizing radiological exposure for the intervention personnel to be a matter of key concern. In this connection, progress in the area of device technology must be supplemented by observance of radiological protection measures by the staff."
Dr. Olaf Göing
Sana Klinikum, Berlin
"These days, when we have a better understanding of the connections between radiology dose and potential illness than we did previously, I think that features that enable us to reduce the dose of radiation should be provided as a matter of course. There should not even be the possibility of choosing differently just to cut costs."
"Protecting employees as part of our ‘constant activity’ in the cardiac catheterization laboratory cannot be rated highly enough."
"If I were buying a catheterization unit I would classify radiological dose-reduction features as a fixture, if the case arose. All other options depend on financial and medical necessity and can still be negotiated, unlike radiological protection."
Stony Brook Medical Center, New York
„syngo DynaCT and the integrated CARE feature make the task of keeping the dose low virtually effortless“
Prof. Johannes Brachmann
Coburg Clinic, Coburg
“New image algorithms from recent updates deliver the best images we have ever seen.”
“Today images show a very homogenous contrast distribution, sharp vessel edges, and minimal background noise. Siemens has done a great job with image processing enhancements.”
Dr. Gerard O´Sullivan
University College Hospital Galway, Ireland
“There are certain differences which make the Siemens system in my opinion at least superior, specifically iGuide, the DynaCT, and the ability to pan to a specific position on the patient without using Fluoroscopy is a massive advantage. They seem like little things, but it´s an accumulative thing.”

Join the Right Dose Community
Radiation dose and radiation dose protection for patients and staff is one of the most discussed topics in medical imaging.
Now you can easily and directly share and discuss dose management strategies, settings, and protocols with other clinical experts.
Join the Right Dose Community and benefit from direct peer-to-peer exchange as well as exclusive Siemens information.
The statements by Siemens' customers described herein are based on results that were achieved in the customer's unique setting. Since there is no "typical" hospital and many variables exist (e.g., hospital size, case mix, level of IT adoption) there can be no guarantee that other customers will achieve the same results.
