Siemens Healthineers is on an FDA clearing streak of its newest CT scanners. The latest news, following up clearances of the SOMATOM Force and SOMATOM Edge Plus, is that SOMATOM go.All and SOMATOM go.Top can also now be marketed in America.
The SOMATOM go.All and SOMATOM go.Top are more budget friendly scanners, yet offer tablet control, a remote, and imaging capabilities that are frequently found only in more expensive devices.
SOMATOM go.All images using 64 slices per gantry rotation, while the SOMATOM go.Top can generate potentially twice the resolution using 128 slices or reduce imaging time by half. It has an acquisition speed of acquisition speed that gets up to 175 mm in one second. Otherwise the scanners are not much different from each other.
They both use Siemens’ Athlon X-ray tube that can dynamically change the radiation dose delivered.
