Date:6/19/2012

MALVERN, Pa., June 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Siemens Healthcare (NYSE: SI) has announced that the SOMATOM Definition Edge single-source computed tomography (CT) system – the first single-source CT to use Siemens' recently introduced Stellar Detector – has been approved for sale in the United States.

The increased spatial resolution may potentially benefit critical cases such as emergency diagnostics and cardiovascular examinations, where every additional visible micrometer can be beneficial.
