FDA OKs Siemens CT scanners in go. product line

By AuntMinnie.com staff writers

December 11, 2019 -- Siemens Healthineers has received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearance for two CT systems in the company's go. product family.

The 64-slice Somatom go.Sim and 128-slice Somatom go.Open Pro are designed for radiation therapy planning. The Somatom go. platform features hardware and software components such as patient marking lasers and automated quality assurance to limit potential errors and reduce time to treatment. The scanners have 85-cm bores to accommodate positioning accessories and to improve patient comfort.

In addition, Somatom go.Open Pro's Direct Intelligent 4D (Direct i4D) technology is designed to adapt image acquisition to patient breathing in real-time to reduce artifacts and variations in images to potentially decrease target margins and spare healthy tissue.
