Redefining computed tomography
With photon-counting computed tomography (CT)1, Siemens Healthineers developed a radically new technology for clinical routine.
Precise images thanks to photon-counting
Patients benefit from precise, noninvasive diagnosis in cardiology, oncology, and pulmonology – for example in lung follow-up checks for COVID-19 – at reduced radiation dose and lower doses of contrast media.
Stamina and farsightedness
It took vision, perseverance, and almost 20 years of research and engineering to develop the new technology. Here is why – and how the team did it.
