SOMATOM Definition Flash CT Scanner

Siemens' latest high-end scanner, which takes our unmatched Dual Source technology to a whole new level, is the SOMATOM Definition Flash a scanner that will change your perceptions of radiation dose.

The SOMATOM Definition Flash was designed specially to make CT exams much healthier for your patients. Its core innovation - the revolutionary Flash Spiral - can be summarized in 4 words: Flash speed. Lowest dose.

With Flash Spiral scanning, holding breath and motion lose their significance, making the SOMATOM Definition Flash the optimal patientfriendly CT. Now with the new, cutting-edge FAST CARE technology you raise the standard of patient-centric productivity, e.g. through FAST Cardio Wizard, that breaks down the restrictions of previous CT cardiac scanning. Split-second scanning is proving its value in actual practice. Emergency department trauma scans of an entire body in less than 5 seconds with dose usually under 5 mSv have also been made possible by the Flash’s speed.
