“The mobile workflow: More than ever, the patient is in the center of the whole examination.”
Carla Susana Ribeiro Pinto
CT radiographer at Centro Hospitalar de São João, Porto, Portugal
Work more efficiently and patient-friendly
We built SOMATOM® go.Top around a new mobile workflow to bring an unparalleled level of flexibility and mobility to your daily CT procedures.
- The tablet gives you total freedom over how you work and lets you stay with the patient for longer
- The integrated injector arm lets you position the injector where you need it, when you need it, and makes for a neat and organized working environment
- With the new workplace design you can set up the workstation in the same room, outside the scan room, or in a separate control room
- The integrated 2D camera makes it easy to spot even micro-movements and keep the patient in the right position
- The easy-to-use Bluetooth remote control makes CT workflow processes more efficient
With the SOMATOM go.Top CT scanner, users can spend most of the time with the patient – which results in higher efficiency, higher patient comfort, and fewer motion artifacts.

Automate your workflow with GO technologies
Our GO technologies are now available for the first time in both routine scanning and advanced clinical fields. They help standardize and simplify all departmental processes – from patient setup to image distribution, archiving, and reading.
- Scan&GO: a tablet app that allows you to control scans remotely. In cardiac CT, Scan&GO even simplifies electrode handling and ECG monitoring.
- Check&GO: an intelligent algorithm that flags up problems with coverage or contrast media distribution as they occur. It can ultimately reduce the number of recalls.
- Recon&GO: performs zero-click postprocessing, making it part of the standard reconstruction tasks. It saves time and cuts down on workflow steps.
- CT View&GO: an all-in-one, cross-specialty viewing solution that provides a large variety of clinical applications in one workflow. It is also available as an independent console.
Go for the full clinical spectrum with patient-centric technologies
SOMATOM go.Top enables you to confidently offer specialized CT procedures, including Dual Energy and cardiac CT, for additional diagnostic information. With patient-centric technology and workflows to optimally adapt to each type of patient, all operators can turn challenging fields into routine – and serve the full clinical spectrum.
Speed and standardization in acute care
Help your operators perform at 100 percent, regardless of experience. Our workflows and technology allow you to move fast and make confident, patient-focused decisions when every second counts.
Routine-ready Dual Energy
Increase your diagnostic confidence for all types of patients with TwinBeam Dual Energy. By acquiring low- and high-kV datasets in a single scan, it visualizes information that would otherwise go unseen – with no dose penalty.
Clinical consistency in cardiac CT
Stay ahead of the competition with optimized preparation, fast scanning, and standardized results in every cardiac case. Seamless integration of GO technologies allows you to devote more time to your patient.
Sensitive scanning in pediatrics
Put the wellbeing of your little patients – and their parents – first. Use the mobile workflow to stay close to the child as you prepare the scan, and minimize radiation exposure with dedicated pediatric solutions and the Tin Filter.
Patient-centric technologies in routine CT
Deliver consistent and reliable results in routine CT. Guided workflows and cutting-edge technologies allow you to optimally adapt to each patient in routine oncology, vascular, orthopedic, and neuro imaging.
Intuitive functions in CT-guided intervention
Our tablet-based solution Guide&GO is the latest innovation in CT-guided intervention. Intuitive functions help you accurately navigate and target, while advanced dose features protect both you and your patients.
Give your CT business a new push forward
Setting yourself apart with a wide variety of clinical cases is a chance to give your CT business a new push forward. Our guided workflows in Dual Energy, for instance, have the potential to significantly improve your reputation.
Additional revenues can also be generated through higher throughput – based on quicker positioning, simplified workflows, and the high-performance Athlon® tube. Add to that lower installation expenditure and running costs, and you’ll see why we say that the SOMATOM go. platform was built to make success your daily business.
