The scanner offers an affordable CT imaging option for a range of healthcare facilities, including outpatient diagnostic centers, and combines dual-source CT technology with an AI-powered user interface called myExam Companion, which collects patient data (gender, height, and age) and relevant information, such as heart rate or breath-hold capabilities. Also available with the scanner is Siemens' optional FAST (Fully Assisting Scanner Technologies) 3D camera.

Somatom Pro.Pulse has an air-cooled gantry, requires 31% less space for installation than the company's previous dual-source systems, and consumes 20% less power than traditional water-cooled dual-source CT scanners, the company said.
