Siemens Healthineers Unveils SOMATOM Go. CT Platform For Excellent Return On Investment

RSNA 2016: South Building, Hall A, Booth 1936 -- At the 102 nd Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA), Nov. 27 to Dec. 2 at Chicago's McCormick Place, the separately managed healthcare business of Siemens AG is presenting itself for the first time under its new brand name, Siemens Healthineers. The new name underlines the company's pioneering spirit and its engineering expertise in the healthcare industry. With a new strategic direction, Siemens Healthineers aims to enable healthcare providers around the world to meet their current challenges and to excel in their respective environments. Through products and solutions designed to increase efficiency and to reduce costs, Siemens Healthineers is setting new trends in healthcare together with its customers - working under the motto "Engineering Success. Pioneering Healthcare. Together."

Based on key requirements expressed by its main customer groups in radiology, Siemens Healthineers has developed an entirely new platform for computed tomography (CT) that responds to diverse user needs. The SOMATOM go. platform with the SOMATOM go.Now and SOMATOM go.Up scanners offers automated, standardized workflows that help users achieve profound clinical results. In addition, the multi-year service packages and corresponding high financial reliability help enable users to run their business successfully. The innovative usage concept facilitates more comprehensive patient care and offers radiology providers the option of using a cost-efficient single-room concept for the first time.

The 32-slice SOMATOM go.Now is particularly suited to radiology providers who want to establish a new CT department. SOMATOM go.Up is equipped with a wider detector providing up to 64 slices. Among other benefits, it offers faster scanning, which is especially important for lung imaging - e.g., to screen for lung cancer. This model is therefore suited for radiologists who want to expand an already successful portfolio.
