Siemens Healthineers won FDA clearance for its SOMATOM Force dual source CT scanner. Just like the recently cleared SOMATOM Edge Plus, this device includes the company’s FAST (Fully Assisting Scanner Technologies) Integrated Workflow that relies on a 3D camera positioned over the patient bed to recognize the head, torso, and other parts of the body. This allows the system to automate scan prep, getting patients in and out of the scanning room quickly.

Touchscreen tablets are built in on both sides of the gantry, allowing adjustments to be made without walking away from the patient, providing an additional bit of efficiency.

Additional features include iterative metal artifact reduction (iMAR), which reduces the image distortion created by implants such as pacemakers and artificial joints, and the Image Reconstruction System (IRS) that processes 70 images a second using iterative reconstruction.
