Samsung Unveils Mobile CT OmniTom at RSNA 2017

November 26, 2017 — Samsung Electronics debuted its OmniTom mobile 16-slice computed tomography (CT) scanner at the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) 2017 Annual Meeting, Nov. 26-Dec. 1 in Chicago. OmniTom received 510(k) U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearance for the U.S. market on Aug. 18 of this year.

OmniTom features an array of improvements from Samsung's CereTom CT scanner, including:

  • Improved workflow: According to Samsung, OmniTom is the world's first mobile imaging device with omni-directional wheels, maximizing mobility and allowing easier and quieter movement in small spaces;
  • Superior image quality: Sixteen-slice (0.625 mm per slice) advanced data acquisition system with effective dose optimization;
  • Expanded use: Maintains a small footprint ideal for mobile use while increasing the gantry opening to 40 cm for improved coverage of adult head and neck, and full body pediatric scanning; and
  • Enhanced safety system: OmniTom features an internal drive system, making portability less strenuous, while also offering smart-sensing collision avoidance software to maximize control and patient safety.

OmniTom is ideal for cranial procedures and is designed to deliver high-quality non-contrast CT, CT angiography and CT perfusion scans. The combination of its rapid scan time, ultra-small footprint and immediate image viewing helps OmniTom collect real-time data on critically ill patients.

The latest product also demonstrates Samsung's "AccE" (Access, Accuracy and Efficiency) to incorporate innovations in physical access to provide care wherever it is needed. It also aims to improve accuracy in diagnosis with advanced algorithms and efficiency with advanced display, UX and information management technology developed by Samsung Electronics.

In addition to OmniTom, Samsung will be showcasing its spectral CT with Photon Counting Detector (PCD), the next generation of CT technology. Samsung's team will also be demonstrating a range of healthcare solutions in mobile CT, digital radiography and ultrasound that are all designed to bridge the care-delivery gap and maximize efficiency to enhance the patient experience. Such solutions include:

  • Ultrasound Segment: Samsung will feature their comprehensive general imaging ultrasound portfolio, including the new HS60 and HS40 ultrasound systems that were introduced earlier this year. The RS80A with Prestige, Samsung's premium general imaging ultrasound system, will be displayed in three daily educational demonstrations featuring live scanning. The RS80A includes technologies for the busy radiology department that help boost clinical confidence;
  • Digital Radiography Segment: Samsung will display a wide range of its portfolio including two ceiling-mounted systems, GC85 and GC70, as well as highlight its premium portable GM85 X-ray. The GM85's enhanced mobility and streamlined workflow will enable users to experience high efficiency and image quality. Samsung has also adopted low-dose technology for enhanced patient safety; and
  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging Segment: Samsung will be showcasing a prototype of specialty MRI, an MRI imaging device for arms and/or legs. It is designed to maximize not only cost and space but also patient convenience, as it eliminates the need for the whole body to be in the MRI device.
