By staff writers

September 10, 2021 -- Siemens Healthineers has garnered U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearance for its Somatom X.ceed CT scanner.

Featuring a new hardware and software combination, the single-source CT scanner has an 82-cm bore and is designed for all diagnostic procedures, particularly cardiac and trauma imaging, according to the vendor. X.ceed, which was initially announced in May, provides 0.25-second rotation speed, 262 mm/second scan speed, a 0.4 x 0.5 focal point, and 1,300 mA power reserves.

Siemens has also included its artificial intelligence (AI)-based myExam Companion user guidance software, as well as its myNeedle Companion hardware and software package to aid in planning and guidance of percutaneous needle procedures. Another application, myExam Satellite, enables immediate assessment of CT perfusion results, Siemens said.
