Siemens Healthineers has received clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for its Somatom go.All and Somatom go.Top CT scanners.

The 64-slice Somatom go.All features Stellar detector technology, a 0.33-sec rotation time, and a 75-kW generator. Somatom go.Top is a 128-slice scanner that offers an acquisition speed of up to 175 mm/sec to image trauma patients, according to the company.

Both devices have the company's new Athlon x-ray tube, designed to optimize dose based on the individual patient, Siemens said. Users can also adjust the tube voltage in 10-kV increments and inject patients with contrast through a flexible gantry-mounted injector arm.

In addition, Somatom go.Top has TwinBeam dual-energy imaging, which allows the same body region to be examined at the same time at two different energy levels.
