Siemens Delivers Flash Speed, Lowest Dose to Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children

ages, reduced radiation exposure, and significantly lessens the need for contrast dye injections."

As children and babies are at a great risk to radiation exposure, the awareness of the ALARA (As Low As Reasonably Achievable) principle is, in particular, a more sensitive issue for parents, patients and healthcare providers.

"Siemens is a leader in pediatric CT imaging and the SOMATOM Definition Flash is built to be the Gold standard. Future generations are going to be exposed to a fraction of the dose while providing the highest level of patient care and comfort that creates peace of mind in the community," said Kulin Hemani, vice president, Computed Tomography, Siemens Healthcare. "The speed of the SOMATOM Definition Flash, the excellent imaging quality from head to toe, combined with the lowest deliverable dose, ensures that pediatric patients receive the best care. This is accomplished irrespective of patient motion and within a fraction of a second."

Owing to its high scanning speed, the SOMATOM Definition Flash also features new possibilities for performing CT examinations of the adult heart in the sub-millisiervert (mSv) range. This represents up to a much lower radiation dose than is obtainable with conventional systems. For the first time ever, the heart can thus be examined at a radiation exposure level that is three times lower than the background radiation a person naturally absorbs in a year. The SOMATOM Definition Flash is the only CT scanner on the market that enables the use of noninvasive cardiological diagnostic techniques with routine applications at the lowest possible radiation exposure levels routinely below 1 mSv.

The Siemens Healthcare Sector is one of the world's largest suppliers to the healthcare industry and a trendsetter in medical imaging, laboratory diagnostics, medical information technology and hearing aids. Siemens is the only company to offer customers products and solutions
