Siemens Healthcare, of Malvern, Pa., has announced the development of a solution that aims to cover all aspects of neuroradiology.

Bringing together its SOMATOM computed tomography scanner technology and CT Neuro Engine, Siemens showcased the product at the 47th annual meeting of the American Society of Neuroradiology in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, which takes place through May 21.

“Siemens is proud to offer volume perfusion capabilities on a wide variety of our scanners,” said Kulin Hemani, vice president, Computed Tomography, Siemens Healthcare. "Adaptive 4D Spiral, the innovative acquisition, which allows volume perfusion coverage of up to 15 centimeters on SOMATOM Definition Flash, is currently available, not only on our premium scanners, but across the entire spectrum of our  SOMATOM  Definition CT portfolio, bringing the technology to every patient. Moreover, the 15 centimeter coverage is offered in the entire field-of-view, unlike other perfusion techniques offered on large-area detectors where large cone-beam angle impacts the volume that can be visualized.” 

With the CT Neuro Engine, data is available in seconds, according to Siemens. Treating physicians can access findings remotely through syngo Expert-I findings, and 3D evaluations can be performed by using syngo WebSpace from any Internet connection.

Meanwhile, fully automated 3D syngo Volume Neuro Perfusion CT tools allow for quantitative volume evaluation for differential diagnosis of ischemic stroke. Additionally, the features support simultaneous multislice processing, as well as the strict time and workflow requirements.
