SOMATOM – Telescopic Scanner Design Video

This short video (01:25 min) introduces the telescopic scanner design of the SOMATOM CT head scanner.

Somatom on site features a telescopic scanner design that rethinks mobile head CT imaging. The gantry telescopes outward during the scan as the tube and detector move away from the front door opening. The overall position of the system remains fixed. That way you can achieve consistent and reliable image quality without motion artifacts that are typically caused by scanner movement and reduce scatter radiation at the same time. For image acquisition, the Gantry telescope extends while the front cover of the gantry remains stationary the whole time. This reduces the risk of patient lines being pulled during the scanning process. Since the telescopic gantry glides on the system trolley, you can move the front cover out of the way, for example, when positioning the patient, so you always have ample space. Using the telescoping gantry supports bedside CT imaging in three ways. It enables comfortable patient positioning and image acquisition. Workflow it offers a holistic radiation safety concept for staff and neighboring patients and it contributes to consistent and reliable CT image quality at the point of care. Somatom onsite bringing critical care imaging to your patient.
