    December 20, 2016 — The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted 510(k) clearance for Siemens’ Somatom Confidence Radiation Therapy (RT) Pro computed tomography (CT) scanner with features dedicated to RT planning.

  • In October, Siemens Healthcare debuted a host of imaging systems that enable RT professionals to go further in the direction of personalized therapy.

  • Computed tomography (CT) virtual simulation systems allow 3-D viewing and planning along with verification images to achieve the same level of treatment simulation as with radiotherapy (RT) simulation. CT offers an improvement over conventional simulation because of its 3-D visualization, only...
