Date:3/26/2009

SOMATOM Definition Flash sets the bar higher for cardiology

ORLANDO, Fla., March 26 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Siemens Healthcare (www.usa.siemens.com/healthcare) demonstrates the fastest speed and lowest dose for cardiac applications with the SOMATOM(R) Definition Flash dual source computed tomography (CT) scanner at the 58th Annual Scientific Session of the American College of Cardiology (ACC) from March 29-31 in Orlando, Fla., at booth #1842. Siemens CT covers the entire spectrum of cardiology, from early detection to acute care through follow-up.

"The SOMATOM Definition Flash requires only a fraction of the radiation dose that systems previously required to scan even the tiniest anatomical details faster than ever before," said Kulin Hemani, vice president, CT, Siemens Medical Solutions USA, Inc. "Scanning the thorax, including the heart, can be done in only 0.6 seconds, taking the burden of breath-holding off the patient and allowing functional imaging for body regions up to 48 cm."

Flexible cardiac examinations with a minimum radiation dose

Temporal resolution of 75 ms and scan speed of up to 43 cm/s make heart-scanning possible, with dose levels below 1 millisievert (mSv), whereas the average effective dose required for this purpose usually ranges from 8 mSv to 40 mSv. The patient is moved through the CT-scanner more than twice as fast as with any conventional system, and at the same time, requiring a much lower radiation dose than conventional scans. In comparison, the X-ray radiation that the average person is exposed to each year from natural sources amounts to 2 mSv to 5 mSv. The dose values of the new Siemens CT scanner lie far belo
