How to - Practical tips and tricks for CT scanning from the experts

Siemens SOMATOM Scanners are equipped with innovative technologies making CT scans tailored to the individual patient possible.

A series of flyers is available to help you to use these technologies to the fullest: experts from the Siemens CT Research & Development department share their knowledge with you.

Basic topics such as optimized patient positioning are addressed and special tips and tricks are provided for the examinations in challenging clinical situations. The flyers are meant to be placed next to the scanner so that you and your staff always have expert advice on dose reduction at the fingertips.

How to reduce dose in Cardio CT - SOMATOM Definition AS Family, syngo CT 2011A

 

The scanners of the SOMATOM Definition AS Family offer various scan modes to match the clinical requirements for different clinical situations in Cardio CT.
The flyer includes information about the appropriate scan mode and advice as to how reconstruction parameters should be chosen.

 

How to reduce dose in Cardio CT
SOMATOM Definition Flash, syngo CT 2011B

 

Coronary CT Angiography is one of the more challenging CT acquisitions in your daily practice. With the tips and tricks provided in this flyer, you will be prepared to decide on the scan mode and reconstruction settings. The unique technology of the Flash Spiral is covered, as are the other scan modes for Cardio CT on the SOMATOM Definition Flash.

How to scan with CARE Dose4D
syngo CT 2011

 

CARE Dose4D adjusts the tube current automatically for the individual patient and examination. This flyer provides information about the settings and how they can be customized to match the clinical needs of the institution based on the technology implemented in syngo CT 2011.

 

How to scan with CARE kV
syngo CT 2011
  

 

CARE kV makes automated tube voltage adjustment possible, and CARE Child even allows for scanning with 70 kV. This flyer includes information about the prerequisites and workflow, and information about the technology of tube voltage adaption.

 

How to scan children with FAST CARE
syngo CT 2011

 

The new dose management features will be especially beneficial to the youngest patients due to their increased sensitivity to radiation dosage. To meet special requirements in pediatric CT imaging, this flyer summarizes tips and tricks for scanning children with FAST CARE.

 



Clinical Poster Gallery

The following training materials are established to support you and your staff in daily clinical pratice.

Siemens Healthcare is happy to provide you with a brilliant way to educate staff and patients about the human anatomy as seen through a CT-scanner.

Perfect for the patient waiting room, the staff lounge or the wall of the reading room, these posters show the wide range of views that are easily created with a CT dataset. In every poster, key anatomy is clearly labeled and workflows explained.

CT Neuro Anatomy & Pathology
Together with Stephan Kloska, MD, from Muenster University, Muenster, Germany, Siemens Healthcare designed a poster focusing on anatomy and CT-specific landmarks relevant for CT angiographies of neck and head vessels. Information about a recommended stroke workflow is also included. The radiology department of Muenster performs around 5500 neuro examinations per year, providing the faculty has an extensive experience in neuroradiology.
 

CT Colonography

Thomas Mang, MD, and co-workers from the Medical University of Vienna, Austria, have performed around 800 CTC exams on their SOMATOM Sensation 16 and 64 scanners over the last four years. Based on their experience with virtual colonoscopy, they have created a poster demonstrating the spectrum of CTC findings in colon diseases. All diseases are briefly described and extensively illustrated in 3D and 2D CT images, guiding and assisting users in the reporting of findings.
 

CT Intervention – Vertebroplasty

There has been a steady rise in the use of CT for biopsy and for image-guided, minimally-invasive therapies. Thanks to the excellent cooperation between Ralf Hofmann, MD, from the University of Munich, Campus Großhadern, Germany and Siemens a new clinical poster was designed. The poster informs, physicians and patients about state-of-the-art procedures in vertebroplasty, offering information regarding indications, contra-indications as well as access paths and results.
