CT scanner for radiation therapists and physicists

Siemens Healthcare Diagnostics UK : 30 September, 2016  (New Product)
The Somatom Confidence RT Pro CT Scanner has been introduced to radiotherapists and radiation physicists by Siemens Healthcare Diagnostics
CT scanner for radiation therapists and physicists

Siemens introduced its new Somatom Confidence RT Pro CT scanner at the 2016 annual meeting of the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) in Boston. This is one of the first CT scanners specifically designed to fulfill the needs of two professions in radiation therapy (RT): radiation oncologists and physicists.



Thanks to the new DirectDensity algorithm, the CT scanner provides personalised images of the patient, for optimal tumour and organs-at-risk contouring by the clinician – and images optimised for radiation therapy treatment dose calculation performed by a physicist.



The Somatom Confidence RT Pro is the new version of the software syngo.via RT Image Suite, which is designed to support a smooth workflow and reduce sources of error.



The Somatom Confidence RT Pro provides all the functionalities of a CT simulator, which produces images that are used by physicians to define the target and organs at risk for treatment prescription.



In addition it provides great image quality, thanks to the new detector and iterative reconstruction methods, which is needed for contouring. “This new offering complements the dedicated Siemens Healthineers MR, CT, PET/CT and software portfolio for radiation therapy and demonstrates how it can help healthcare facilities improve their outcomes while also lowering costs,” explains Dr Gabriel Haras, Head of Radiation Oncology at Siemens.
