Making highly precise plaque differentiation part of your clinical routine will not only improve patient outcome, but also increase process efficiency, as unmistakingly clear findings will drastically reduce the number of discussions about the state of the plaque. Covering greater volumes faster, improving contrast media efficiency in low kV TAVI planning, and introducing reliable, high-speed triple rule-out scanning will expand your institution’s clinical capabilities – and help you exceed the expectations that come with increasingly complex cardiac cases.
Emergency scanning is as much about time as it is about image quality.
You will be able to optimize process efficiency with solutions that let you not only improve emergency workflow but also substantially reduce door-to-image time, from pediatric to obese patients. The new SOMATOM Definition Edge enables excellent tissue evaluation, allows for the scanning of pediatric and obese patients without dose discussions, and facilitates a minimized sedation and breath hold with a pitch of 1.7 at 23 cm/sec, so you can reduce door-to-image and optimize your overall emergency workflow.
With around a quarter of therapies adjusted after response assessment, a key challenge in oncology is finding out if the tumor is responsive to therapy. Making therapy response assessment faster, more reliable, and easier to manage, will directly benefit your workforce as well as your patients. Expanding your clinical capabilities with improved, low dose therapy control, and CT-based early tumor identification will benefit your institution both in daily practice and in the long run: the more reliable and dose-efficient the technology gets, the greater its role will become for preventive care, as well.
