We are looking forward to digitally meeting you!
A Message from our CEO
At our virtual booth you can listen to Dr. Bernd Montag, our CEO, about our goals and the vision in cancer therapy. Learn more about combining the strength of Varian Medical Systems and Siemens Healthineers when it comes to two leaps at one step!
Visit one of our Reference Sites for CT – virtually!
Take the opportunity to virtually visit the Radiation Therapy Department at the University Hospital in Erlangen, Germany, and learn about their new CT simulator, the SOMATOM go.Open Pro in an interactive format. Just visit our booth at the virtual ASTRO 2020 meeting and make sure to take advantage of this one-time possibility by getting first-hand insights from our users.
No registration needed - just check our digital media library!
Now it is time for MR in RT!
Learn about our comprehensive solutions for Magnetic Resonance for RT including 4D MRI and synthetic CT and listen to the first-hand experience of our customers. Explore it at our booth at the virtual ASTRO 2020 meeting. Don't miss it!
The time is now for PET in RT - with Biograph mCT Sim edition.
PET/CT utilization in RT treatment planning continues to see steady growth. The overall utilization of PET-based imaging has more than tripled since 2003.1 Our new Biograph™ mCT Sim edition package sets the standard in PET/CT for RT planning. Featuring a large bore, this RT-dedicated solution has access to intelligent imaging applications to make standardized protocols and personalized scans possible. Complex procedures, such as PET motion-free imaging can be transformed to an easy click of a button, and 4D CT workflow can be streamlined by automatically setting optimal scan parameters based on the patient's breathing cycle. Image quality can be optimized for every patient by eliminating the need for tube-dependent calibration in the treatment planning system.2 Biograph mCT Sim edition brings you one comprehensive solution for PET/CT in radiation therapy - driving the right planning for the right treatment. See more at our booth at the virtual ASTRO 2020 meeting!
Of course - there is so much more to explore!
Make sure to watch our lunchtime SOMATOM go.Open Pro demo on Tuesday, Oct 27 at 11:15 am Eastern Time. You can find the access in the official ASTRO 2020 program.
Additionally, we encourage you to contact your local sales representative to schedule personalized meetings around ASTRO 2020 dedicated to your needs. It doesn't matter if you want to talk to a specific product expert or experience a hands-on software demonstration, e.g. on our syngo.via solutions or the AI Rad Companion Organs RT with one of our application specialists.
We are all set for you!

2As shown by measurements with a Gammex 467 Tissue Characterization Phantom comparing standard reconstruction (kernel D30) and DirectDensity reconstruction (kernel E30). HU value to relative electron density conversion for the standard reconstruction was based on a two-linear-equations approach with individual calibration for each tube voltage. For DirectDensity images a single tube-voltage-independent linear conversion was used.
