Siemens Excited about SOMATOM Emotion CT Upgrades

April 4, 2007 - Siemens Medical Solutions announced that it has leveraged user feedback to enhance the SOMATOM Emotion to produce reportedly detailed images with a slice thickness as small as 0.5 mm and with accelerated image reconstruction times, as part of Siemens� strategy to offer cost-effective access to a 16-slice CT system.

Based on its economical price point, low lifecycle cost and compact design, this CT system is designed to address demands of smaller hospitals and diagnostic imaging centers. The compact SOMATOM Emotion fits in just 60 square feet and can be quickly and easily installed. Engineered with an air-cooled and durable X-ray tube and low power requirements, the system works reliably even under the most demanding clinical schedules.

The SOMATOM Emotion also uses CARE Dose4D software to lower the radiation dose as much as clinically possible. The integrated software reduces radiation exposure by as much as 66 percent, compared to conventional CT scanning.
