At RSNA ’13, Siemens Offers Answers For Life

At the 99 th Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA), December 1 to 6 in Chicago, Siemens Healthcare (Booth #1934, South Building/Lakeside Center at McCormick Place, Hall A) will provide “Answers for Life” by offering cutting-edge and accessible technological innovations designed to advance human health. With these systems and related solutions, Siemens will demonstrate its enduring status as a trusted partner that helps its customers fight the world’s most threatening diseases, elevate quality and productivity in health care, and enable improved access to treatment.

At RSNA 2013, Siemens will showcase the following innovations:


The visionary Artis Q and Artis Q.zen angiography systems from Siemens feature a revolutionary X-ray tube and detector technology designed to improve minimally invasive therapy for coronary artery disease (CAD), stroke and cancer, helping hospitals improve patient outcomes and satisfaction. The Artis Q.zen product line combines the X-ray tube with a new crystalline silicon detector that permits imaging at ultra-low radiation levels, enabling utilization of doses as low as half the standard levels applied in angiography. Paired with CARE+CLEAR, a comprehensive portfolio of image quality and dose-saving tools that is standard with all Artis systems, Siemens is determined to provide the lowest possible dose to its customers. Its innovative technology, backed by the value it generates at various levels of the care continuum, has been recognized by Frost & Sullivan with the 2013 North American Award for Company of the Year.

Computed Tomography

Engineered to drive efficiency and reduce costs, the new 16- and 32-slice configurations of Siemens’ SOMATOM Perspective family of computed tomography (CT) scanners 1 bring high-end technologies to a broader clientele, with the option of upgrading to the established 64- and 128-slice configurations. In addition to being suitable for routine oncology scans as well as head, neck, lung, and abdominal imaging, the 16-slice SOMATOM Perspective can help ensure that pain-relieving analgesics are delivered to the correct location during surgery. The 32-slice configuration is designed to provide more detailed imaging for bone fractures, inner ear examinations, and vascular applications. Both configurations of the SOMATOM Perspective feature the SAFIRE (Sinogram Affirmed Iterative Reconstruction) 2 algorithm, which enables the user to reduce radiation dose by as much as 60 percent or improve image quality correspondingly.

Magnetic Resonance

At RSNA 2013, Siemens will debut revolutionary technologies designed to enable fast body magnetic resonance (MR) imaging for all patients. The technologies will be available on the MAGNETOM Skyra 3T and MAGNETOM Area 1.5T MRI systems. The new StarVIBE MR pulse sequence is designed to enable free-breathing, contrast-enhanced liver imaging for patients (including patients who are old, very ill, or young) unable to easily manage breath-holding. Siemens’ new TWIST-VIBE MR sequence is designed to enable correct contrast imaging in dynamic liver MRI for all patients and lesions, allowing fast, robust liver imaging with full 4D coverage. The sequences StarVIBE and TWIST-VIBE will be available as the FREEZEit package.
