Dual Source CT System Refer a Patient Order A Test Contact Us Did you know the Siemens SOMATOM Definition dual source CT system... can resolve details as tiny as 1/3 of a millimeter—or about the size of a grain of salt. is operated with 4 million lines of software code. is manufactured using 50,000 parts, carefully engineered and calibrated to work together to enable our hallmark low dose, high quality imaging. contains 600 meters of cables and wires. acquires 4,608 projections on each data acquisition unit—resulting in 23,272 clinical images per minute. rotates with a force of 28 times the force of gravity, at a speed of 330 milliseconds per rotation. comprises two X-ray tubes capturing cardiac data at 83 milli seconds—allowing for quality imaging at lowest possible dose. is fast enough to scan high and irregular heart rates, up to 140 beats per minute. Most traditional scanners on the market cannot effectively scan patients with a heart rate over 75 beats per minute, hence requiring administration of beta blockers. can characterize different types of kidney stones using Dual Energy protocols. is the gold-standard for bariatric imaging—using a two X-ray tube system that combines 160kw of power.
