Siemens Delivers Flash Speed, Lowest Dose to Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children
Date:10/28/2009

MALVERN, Pa., Oct. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Featuring the lowest dose and the fastest scan speed on the market, Siemens Healthcare's SOMATOM® Definition Flash dual-source computed tomography (CT) scanner is now poised to assist Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children, Orlando, Fla., to better serve its pediatric patients. The SOMATOM Definition Flash requires only a fraction of the radiation dose that systems previously required to scan even the tiniest anatomical details. Parents and pediatric patients will benefit from this technology by not having to worry about sedation that otherwise would have been required for CT imaging. Breath hold is also optional with the Flash technology where images are acquired in the blink of an eye.

The staff and administration at Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children understand the value that using low dose and rapid imaging in one scanner can have to their patients. Dose reduction strategies are most critical since the younger the patient, the greater the impact radiation can have.

The SOMATOM Definition Flash scanner was designed to reduce dose to patients. In addition, the unique X-CARE application selectively reduces the radiation exposure to dose-sensitive anatomical regions, such as thyroid, gonads, and breast region, by as much as 40 percent. An adaptive dose shield blocks irrelevant radiation during spiral scanning, thus ensuring that only a clinically essential radiation exposure occurs. This enables an additional 25 percent reduction of the dose required for routine examinations.

"We are extremely pleased to be the first dedicated pediatric hospital in the world to provide this new technology," said John Bozard, president, Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children. "For our young patients, the SOMATOM Definition Flash scanner means faster im
