Dual Energy has opened the door to a new dimension of CT diagnosis: the characterization and visualization of chemical composition is no longer in the realm of science fiction. As the creators of the world’s first Dual Source Dual Energy CTs, we have acquired a lot of experience – and we have drawn on that experience to design our Single Source Dual Energy scanners as well. Here’s how our technologies work:


Dual Spiral Dual Energy for clinical routine: the technology

The Dual Spiral Dual Energy scan mode consists of two successive spiral scans at different kV and mA levels. It is available for SOMATOM® Definition Edge, SOMATOM Definition AS family, SOMATOM Perspective, and SOMATOM Scope Power – you can do more than just morphology with Single Source CT.

 

Software modules available for Dual Spiral Dual Energy*

The easy-to-use scan mode makes Single Source Dual Energy available for your daily routine 24/7. Dual Spiral Dual Energy comes with dedicated applications for your clinical area. In addition, it features the syngo.CT Dual Energy1 basic viewer with Optimum Contrast and monoenergetic imaging.

  • syngo.CT DE Calculi Characterization1
  • syngo.CT DE Gout1
  • syngo.CT DE Monoenergetic Plus1 
  • syngo.CT DE Bone Marrow1
  • syngo.CT DE Virtual Unenhanced - Liver VNC1
  • syngo.CT DE Brain Hemorrhage1 

 


TwinBeam Dual Energy for clinical routine: the technology

This innovative Dual Energy approach based on a split filter at the X-ray tube allows simultaneous acquisition of high and low kV datasets in single source systems, enabling all high contrast dynamic applications. TwinBeam is available for SOMATOM Definition Edge and SOMATOM Definition AS+.

Software modules available for TwinBeam Dual Energy

TwinBeam Dual Energy enables simultaneous acquisition of high and low kV datasets. Therefore it is possible to use all available True Dual Energy applications on Single Source CT systems with no compromise on dose.

Dual Source Dual Energy for your clinical routine: the technology

During a Dual Source Dual Energy scan, two CT datasets are acquired simultaneously with different kV and mA levels, allowing you to visualize differences in the energy-dependence of the attenuation coefficients of different materials. These images are combined and analyzed to visualize information about anatomical and pathological structures. Dual Source Dual Energy scanning is available for SOMATOM Definition Flash, SOMATOM Drive, and SOMATOM Force.
