SIEMENS SOMATOM Perspective is based on a proven system platform that enables high-end imaging at extremely low dose. It can detect very small diagnostic details with its unique Interleaved Volume Reconstruction (IVR), expanding the scanner’s clinical applications.
Cardiac imaging simplified: SOMATOM Perspective helps increase patient-centric productivity with FAST CARE technology and innovative features. FAST Cardio Wizard provides step-by-step guidance for cardio examinations, boosting reliability and reproducibility. ECG Check and Cardio BestPhase™ automatically identify the best arterial phases. SOMATOM Perspective can also be equipped with the Iterative Temporal Resolution Improvement Method (iTRIM) algorithm, for a temporal resolution as low as 195 msec.
Routine high-speed imaging: With its unique Siemens SureView™ concept, and a 64-row detector coverage, there are no trade-offs between scan speed and image quality – long scan ranges at submillimeter collimation are easier. SureView’s spiral image reconstruction algorithm facilitates challenging, long scans in clinical routine, for example in acute care scenarios.
Single Source Dual Energy: Metal artifacts can present a major challenge when imaging hip implants or complicated fractures. This is where Siemens’ pioneering Single Source Dual Energy (SSDE) technology comes in. It adds valuable quantitative information to the morphology of conventional CT scans making it easier to differentiate material. This feature can also be used in further clinical fields, including for imaging kidney stones or verifying gout diagnoses. And best of all, setting up a SSDE examination is as easy as a regular spiral scan.
Impressive dose reduction with SAFIRE : Sinogram Affirmed Iterative Reconstruction (SAFIRE) brings the full dose-saving potential of iterative reconstruction to clinical practice. SAFIRE - Siemens' first raw-data based iterative reconstruction - can reduce radiation dose by up to 60%, and improve image quality in regard to contrast, sharpness, and noise.
