SOMATOM Definition Edge

Exceeding expectations

SOMATOM Definition Edge

    Confronted with increasingly complex clinical requirements and rising numbers of patients, medical institutions are expected to perform at the limits of capacity every day. The new SOMATOM Definition Edge helps you not only meet, but exceed these expectations by improving your institution’s process efficiency and patient outcome in all clinical capabilities – from contrast media-efficient TAVI planning to precise therapy response management, from low dose therapy control to optimized emergency care workflow.

    1 In clinical practice, the use of SAFIRE may reduce CT patient dose depending on the clinical task, patient size, anatomical location, and clinical practice. A consultation with a radiologist and a physicist should be made to determine the appropriate dose to obtain diagnostic image quality for the particular clinical task. The following test method was used to determine a 54 to 60% dose reduction when using the SAFIRE reconstruction software. Noise, CT numbers, homogeneity, low-contrast resolution and high contrast resolution were assessed in a Gammex 438 phantom. Low dose data reconstructed with SAFIRE showed the same image quality compared to full dose data based on this test. Data on file.
