Siemens installs 1st Somatom Drive CT scanner in U.S.

Siemens Healthineers has installed its first Somatom Drive CT scanner in the U.S., at the University of Iowa Stead Family Children's Hospital in Iowa City.

Somatom Drive is designed for a range of clinical disciplines, including pediatrics, emergency medicine, cardiology, and oncology.

The scanner features the company's new Straton MX Sigma x-ray tube with adjustable voltages in 10-kV increments, ranging from 70 kV to 140 kV, to tailor radiation dose to each patient. In addition, Sigma generators permit enhanced targeted beam focusing for optimum imaging results, Siemens said.
