How to - Practical tips and tricks for CT scanning from the experts

Siemens SOMATOM Scanners are equipped with innovative technologies making CT scans tailored to the individual patient possible.

A series of flyers is available to help you to use these technologies to the fullest: experts from the Siemens CT Research & Development department share their knowledge with you.

Basic topics such as optimized patient positioning are addressed and special tips and tricks are provided for the examinations in challenging clinical situations. The flyers are meant to be placed next to the scanner so that you and your staff always have expert advice on dose reduction at the fingertips.

How to scan with CARE kV
syngo CT 2011


CARE kV makes automated tube voltage adjustment possible, and CARE Child even allows for scanning with 70 kV. This flyer includes information about the prerequisites and workflow, and information about the technology of tube voltage adaption.


Clinical Poster Gallery

The following training materials are established to support you and your staff in daily clinical pratice.

Siemens Healthcare is happy to provide you with a brilliant way to educate staff and patients about the human anatomy as seen through a CT-scanner.

Perfect for the patient waiting room, the staff lounge or the wall of the reading room, these posters show the wide range of views that are easily created with a CT dataset. In every poster, key anatomy is clearly labeled and workflows explained.

CT Neuro Anatomy & Pathology
Together with Stephan Kloska, MD, from Muenster University, Muenster, Germany, Siemens Healthcare designed a poster focusing on anatomy and CT-specific landmarks relevant for CT angiographies of neck and head vessels. Information about a recommended stroke workflow is also included. The radiology department of Muenster performs around 5500 neuro examinations per year, providing the faculty has an extensive experience in neuroradiology.

CT Colonography

Thomas Mang, MD, and co-workers from the Medical University of Vienna, Austria, have performed around 800 CTC exams on their SOMATOM Sensation 16 and 64 scanners over the last four years. Based on their experience with virtual colonoscopy, they have created a poster demonstrating the spectrum of CTC findings in colon diseases. All diseases are briefly described and extensively illustrated in 3D and 2D CT images, guiding and assisting users in the reporting of findings.

CT Intervention – Vertebroplasty

There has been a steady rise in the use of CT for biopsy and for image-guided, minimally-invasive therapies. Thanks to the excellent cooperation between Ralf Hofmann, MD, from the University of Munich, Campus Großhadern, Germany and Siemens a new clinical poster was designed. The poster informs, physicians and patients about state-of-the-art procedures in vertebroplasty, offering information regarding indications, contra-indications as well as access paths and results.

Recommended CT Literature

In addition to the comprehensive clinical curriculum Siemens offers, you will find here a list of recommended CT Literature to further deepen your knowledge.
