CT Scanner SOMATOM Scope - UFC

The highly-efficient, continuously improved Ultra Fast Ceramics (UFC) detector material provides excellent image detail.

Using Siemens’ proprietary Ultra Fast Ceramics (UFC), SOMATOM Scope provides excellent image detail even at low radiation doses. This industry-leading material5 – also used in our top-of-the-line scanners – achieves exceptional overall efficiency thanks to high X-ray absorption combined with extremely effective conversion of X-ray energy into visible light, reducing noise in the images.
SOMATOM Scope features the latest version of UFC, which has been continuously improved over the last years.


CT Scanner SOMATOM Scope - SureViewTM
SureViewTM

Thanks to the SureViewTM reconstruction algorithm, SOMATOM Scope can produce first-rate images even at higher scan speeds. This feature provides that the scanner selects the right pitch value for the defined coverage and scan time, while retaining slice thickness and image integrity. This can be particularly valuable for performing submillimeter lung scans without reducing axial image quality.
 


CT Scanner SOMATOM Scope - Adaptive Signal Boost
The Adaptive Signal Boost technology amplifies low signals when high attenuation is present. This reduces streak artifacts, ensuring correct HU values are maintained without compromising spatial resolution.

Even in the most challenging cases, SOMATOM Scope produces excellent image quality. Adaptive Signal Boost amplifies low signals when high attenuation is present – such as when imaging obese patients or patients with metal implants. This reduces
streak artifacts, ensuring correct HU values are maintained without compromising on spatial resolution. By analyzing signal quality and integrating information from neighboring detector elements into areas with low signals, it can reduce image noise by up to 50%6.


CT Scanner SOMATOM Scope - IRIS
Powerful Siemens Iterative Reconstruction in Image Space (IRIS) identifies and reduces noise by comparing each new image to the raw data.

Iterative Reconstruction in Image Space (IRIS) delivers the same image noise reduction as raw-data-model-based iterative reconstruction, but in a fraction of the time – as the raw data is reconstructed only once. This innovative technology is ideal for cost-effective scanners: it significantly enhances spatial resolution while lowering image noise by up to 25%, enabling further dose reductions across a wide range of clinical applications. This is of particular benefit to children and patients requiring multiple scans.
 


CT Scanner SOMATOM Scope - FAST Planning
FAST, Siemens Fully Assisting Scanner Technologies, automatically detect and apply desired scan ranges, saving valuable time.

Streamlining scan preparation is a vital factor for reducing examination time. FAST Planning automatically detects anatomic regions of interest (ROI) and sets the scan parameters accordingly. This makes CT scan set-up simple and intuitive, even for less experienced technicians. In addition, FAST Planning helps increase patient safety. The automatic parameter setting enables precise organ coverage without overscanning, and limits the need for rescans due to incorrect positioning.


CT Scanner SOMATOM Scope - FAST Spine
FAST Spine helps streamline the preparation of anatomically aligned spine reconstructions.

FAST Spine4 helps streamline: the preparation of anatomically aligned spine reconstructions. The software detects and labels vertebrae within a predetermined scan area, and calculates their position for anatomically correct image reconstruction. This delivers a complete spine reconstruction in just 30 seconds6, while reducing the risk of mislabeling associated with manual preparation.


CT Scanner SOMATOM Scope - FAST 3D Align

FAST 3D Align

Even in challenging situations, such as working with uncooperative patients, in pediatrics or in trauma, you need to deliver timely clear clinical findings. FAST 3D Align4 automatically corrects misalignment of anatomic structures and aligns them to fit the selected reconstruction plane – for highly automated workflows. Moreover, it allows for side-by-side comparisons and adjusts the recon field of view selection. This eliminates manual steps and repeat reconstructions, saving effort, by delivering ready-to-read data.


CT Scanner SOMATOM Scope - eCockpit
eCockpit

The unique eCockpit suite, standard on all SOMATOM Scope scanners, enables more cost-efficient operation. The entire working day of a CT system was taken into consideration, from start-up to scanning to scan breaks. The features eStart, eMode and eSleep extend the scanner’s lifespan by preventing unnecessary wear and tear, and reduce overhead costs by minimizing energy consumption. And thanks to a high degree of automation, the features can be easily integrated into everyday workflows.
