Description

**A fundamentally changing environment:-

*The healthcare market is transforming. Apart from the ongoing consolidation of hospitals and diagnostic imaging centers, perhaps the two most prominent areas of change are reimbursement structures and demographics.

*Healthcare providers are facing, for example, the shift toward outcome-oriented compensation models and an aging population with growing care needs for chronic diseases. In clinical practice, this often means having to manage an increasing number of patients at lower costs. At the same time, consolidation comes along with the need for smooth fleet management and standardized results across networks.

*It is therefore vital for healthcare providers to stay efficient and competitive. They must find ways to increase efficiency and secure referrals by offering high-quality service that is standardized and personal.

*We want to help you achieve success daily. In order to help you address all CT demands with ease and efficiency, we developed SOMATOM go. All in close collaboration with you, our customers. For me, SOMATOM go. All therefore a direct expression of our aim to be an inspiring partner.

**Staying ahead in a challenging market:-

*Changes in demographics and the healthcare market create a challenging situation for healthcare providers. While facing reimbursement cuts, they have to provide services for more – and older – patients. The market, however, also offers opportunities. For example, there is potential for increased income in the reimbursements of advanced clinical fields, such as cardiac CT, and in implementing innovative ways to increase patient throughput.

*Increase in life expectancy & world population

*Demographic change:-As the world’s population is on the rise – and expected to reach 9.7 billion by 2050 – global life expectancy is also increasing. Providing for the care of a growing and aging population will put a severe strain on medical resources.

*Economic pressure:-The growing population puts enormous pressure on healthcare systems around the globe. As a result, many have responded with significant cuts in reimbursement. Another phenomenon we are witnessing is the ongoing consolidation of healthcare providers – this mandates the standardization of processes to increase efficiency.

*Expenditures on healthcare in the U.S.:-Medicare actuaries project growth rates for healthcare spending to gradually increase.3

*Out-of-pocket health expenditure:-Fraction of out-of-pocket expenditure in terms of total health expenditure 4

*Growth potential with coronary CT angiography:-In 2016, CT angiography procedures constituted 11 percent of all CT procedures in the U.S., compared to 7 percent in 2007.5

*Growing expenditure:-Total expenditure on healthcare in the U.S. is pro – jected to grow from $2.5 trillion in 2009 to $5.6 trillion in 2025. As Medicare is a model for many healthcare systems worldwide, it is safe to predict similar trends in many other countries

*Better-informes patients:-In addition, out-of-pocket expenditure on healthcare continues to be an issue for patients worldwide. Consequently, patients are more informed and more selective. Healthcare providers that positively set themselves apart stand a much better chance of attracting such patients.

*The role of CT:-While virtually all CT sites perform pelvis & abdomen, spine, chest, brain, and head & neck procedures,5 an additional opportunity for healthcare providers lies in CT angiography (CTA). Its high sensitivity and negative predictive value for coronary artery diseases are established and proven.6 This and a steady reimbursement payment 7 make coronary CTA a valuable factor within the CT portfolio.

**Make success your daily business:-

  • In a market increasingly characterized by reimbursements based on quality of care rather than fee-for-service, healthcare providers must find new ways to secure income and referrals. It is therefore crucial for CT departments to meet all demands while maintaining consistent high-quality results.
  • We want to help you succeed day after day. This is why we developed the SOMATOM® go. platform. As a member of this platform, SOMATOM go.All enables all users to confidently take on advanced CT procedures.

*Patients and referrers have a choice:-

  • When it comes to health services, patients are better-informed compared to the past and referrers have a choice. In such an environment, your ability as a health care provider to meet their expectations is crucial. At the same time, intensified cost pressure makes efficiency in your workflow equally important. Efficient throughput management and the ability to fully focus on patients are often hindered by complicated scanner operation and cumbersome workflows, particularly in advanced clinical fields.
  • Improving patient satisfaction” rated top priority
  • A 2016 market report asked respondents to name a priority for their CT department’s mission over the coming year. The top priority was to “improve patient satisfaction with their CT experience” (average rating of 4.7 out of 5)

**Go for high performance with trendsetting workflows:- For efficiency independent of the oper ator’s level of experience and a more personal interaction with the patient, SOMATOM go.All is built on a unique concept of mobile operation and workflow automation – for the first time available both in routine and advanced fields.

*Work more efficiently and patient-friendly with the new mobile workflow:-A central element of optimizing efficiency and im proving patient comfort is an entirely new approach to operating the scanner. Built around a new mobile work flow, SOMATOM go.All features a line-up of innovative solutions. Tablet, remote control, camera, injector arm, and a new workplace design bring an unparalleled level of flexibility and mobility to daily CT procedures.

*Tablet:-The lightweight, high-resolution tablet gives you total freedom over how you work. With Scan& GO technology, you just need a few steps for the entire scan. Start checking patient information as soon as you collect it from the waiting room, and then prepare the scan directly at the gantry to stay with the patient for longer. Since the images are sent wirelessly from the scanner to the tablet, operators can return to the patient after the scan and stay there while previewing the images and communicating with radiologists for instant feedback if required.

*Remote control:-

  • The easy-to-use Bluetooth remote control complements the tablet operation by streamlining scanning and making workflow processes more efficient. It simplifies patient positioning by removing the need to use hard- to-reach controls on the gantry.
  • Adjust the table position so everything is ready to go once the patient arrives, and start the scan remotely. Then, end examinations smoothly by moving the table into the unload position as soon as the scan is over.

*Camera :-By helping you keep an eye on the patient at all times, the gantry-integrated camera makes it easy to provide better care. Its 90° viewing angle gives you a superb view of the tunnel on the stationary monitor. The close-up perspective makes it easy to spot even micromovements and keep the patient in the right position. In addition to the camera, the Halo assembly includes ambient mood lighting and a digital visual countdown to help improve patient well-being and help them comply with breath-hold times.

*Injector arm:-The unique gantry-mounted injector arm of SOMATOM go. All lets you position the injector where you need it, when you need it. While a traditional injector cart is often in the way, the injector arm makes for a neat and organized working environment and still lets you flexibly arrange the injector.

*New workplace design :-

  • Thanks to gantry-integrated computers, SOMATOM go. All gives you complete flexibility over where you position the workstation. Depending on your needs and infrastructure, you can set it up in the same room, outside the scan room, or in a separate control room. By using the unique niche concept, for example, you can position the console in the same room as the scanner while keeping staff perfectly safe from radiation. Thus, operators can stay with their patients longer and solve any positioning problems quickly.
  • The image on top visualizes a standard workflow with the operator spending most of the time in the control room. The unique new workflows of SOMATOM go. All, shown below, are based on tablet operation and automation. They allow users to spend most of their time with the patient – which results in higher efficiency, higher patient comfort, and fewer motion artifacts.

*Automate your workflow with GO technologies:-Another important factor contributing to high performance, independent of the operator’s level of experience, is workflow automation. SOMATOM go.All features a holistic set of intuitive solutions that addresses your workflow not only at the scanner but also beyond. These features are now available for the first time in both routine scanning and advanced clinical fields. By reducing repetitive workflow steps, GO technologies help standardize and simplify all departmental processes – from patient setup to image distribution, archiving, and reading. You can therefore work more efficiently and focus on your patients – two key factors for running a successful business.

*Scan &GO:-This advanced tablet app allows you to control scans remotely. You can choose whether to operate the scanner at the gantry or from outside the room to benefit from faster patient preparation and positioning. You can also check the images quickly after the scan, as wireless connectivity sends the results to the tablet almost immediately. Scan &GO brings an entirely new level of flexibility to your processes. Patients are also likely to feel more comfortable, since you can be with them for longer.

*Check &GO:-This intelligent algorithm flags problems with coverage or contrast distribution as they occur. Correct issues on the go, prevent subsequent errors in multiphase scans, and avoid archiving suboptimal images. The FAST ROI feature automatically identifies regions of interest and monitors HU for the aorta and pulmonary trunk in bolus tracking examinations. Check &GO’s automated support means that users of all levels of experience can produce high-quality images.

*Recon &GO:- Recon &GO performs zero-click postprocessing, making it part of the standard reconstruction tasks. This ready-to-read technology saves time and cuts down on work flow steps. Recon &GO delivers high-quality results irrespective of the operator or clinical area, and allows users to spend more time with the patient. Achieve fast, standardized, and reproducible results with this auto mated postprocessing and reconstruction solution.

**“The mobile workflow: More than ever, the patient is in the center of the whole examination:-

*CT View &GO :-As an all-in-one, cross-specialty viewing solution, CT View &GO provides a large variety of clinical apply- cations and tools directly at the scanner – for smooth reading in just one workflow. Thanks to a customizable user interface, you can tailor the system to your needs. The automatic distribution and filming of images and results enhances departmental communication and integration. At the same time, advanced CAD algorithms and applications boost sensitivity and specificity in diagnoses. For additional flexibility, CT View &GO is available as an independent console with the same tools known from the scanner.

*FAST , CARE, and GO :-Proven for years, fully assisting scanner technologies (FAST) bring speed and efficiency to daily CT routines. They make complex procedures more intuitive and enhance consistency through standardized workflows. Combined applications to reduce exposure (CARE) optimize dose level and image quality, and offer patient-friendly scans with parameters adapt ed to the individual anatomy. FAST, CARE, and GO help you deliver better results, make your scanning safer, and devote more time to taking care of your patients.

*Consistency depends on staff:-In order to achieve clinical consistency in CT imaging, you need efficient daily operations. This can be difficult, particularly when facing tasks that are only performed occasionally, such as cardiac or CT-guided intervention. Such tasks can pose a challenge to operators with less experience.

*Chance of diagnostic misinterpretation :-According to a scientific study, incorrect ECG lead fixation and a lack of signal check directly result in step artifacts. These and other image artifacts are among the main reasons for diagnostic misinterpretation in CCTA.

This high-end technology is carefully manufactured to minimize scattered radiation and produce outstanding high- resolution images with minimal noise.

*Fast, reliable scanning in oncology :-

  • Oncology is by far the most common indication for CT exams today. Oncology patients typically undergo multiple CT scans during their lifetime – for staging, therapy planning, and follow-up. A low dose is therefore essential for optimal patient care.
  • SOMATOM go. All is your reliable partner for fast and consistent low-dose imaging in oncology. Tin Filter technology reduces dose and optimizes image quality at the interface of soft tissue and air. Sub-millimeter collimation reduces motion artifacts for clearer images, while Check &GO helps you correct issues with anatomical coverage or contrast media distribution in real time. CT View &GO equips you with dedicated oncology tools to identify and segment lung nodules, and with an endo- scope view for support during virtual colonoscopies.

*Tin Filter:-

  • Inherited from high-end dual-source scanners, Tin Filter technology cuts out lower energies to reduce dose and optimize contrast between soft tissue and air. This has direct benefits for imaging areas such as the lungs, colon, and sinuses.
  • Clinical experience also shows that Tin Filter technology reduces beam-hardening artifacts and improves image quality in bony structures, making it extremely useful in orthopedic examinations.

*IMAR:-iMAR9 (iterative metal artifact reduction) reduces metal artifacts for better image quality with no increase in dose. The high-end algorithm can handle a wide variety of metal implants for smoother, more efficient workflows. It even allows you to address more challenging cases, such as those involving dental fillings, extremity implants, coils, and pacemakers. Diagnostic value can be further strengthened with the combination of IMAR and SAFIRE12 iterative reconstruction to further reduce dose. A strong imaging combination, which is smoothly integrated into your daily orthopedic workflow.

*Precision orthopedic imaging:-

  • Orthopedic imaging demands precise low-dose scanning, long ranges, and high spatial resolution. For optimal outcomes, you also need technology that can handle metal artifacts so that they do not compromise diagnostic quality.
  • SOMATOM go. All makes precision orthopedic imaging easy, with reliable tools to support high-quality scanning for all types of patients. Tin Filter technology lowers dose and improves imaging at the interface of soft tissue and bone.

**SOMATOM go. All | Advanced tasks made easy · Routine CT:-

*Excellent contrast-to-noise ratio:-through powerful low-kV and Stellar detector imaging, facilitated with GO technologies

*CT angiography with low kV setting

  • 1 mm MPR and Cinematic VRT10
  • Tube voltage: 90 kV
  • CTDI Vol: 3.05 mg

*Simple, sharp vascular imaging :-

  • CT angiography for vascular imaging is now routine in many institutions. High-quality angiography exams need good iodine enhancement, sub-millimeter slices, and precise timing. SOMATOM go. All turns this complex juggling act into a smooth and simple procedure for any user, with dedicated tools that boost image quality and help you get the contrast amount and timing right.
  • By allowing you to scan at 70 kV, High Power 70 delivers low dose and the high iodine contrast that is key to vascular imaging. For proper contrast distribution, you can rely on support from FAST ROI and Check &GO, while thin-slice imaging brings you optimal resolution and fast scan speed. To save you time, Recon &GO offers zero-click inline CPR of the main vessels and bone removal.

*High Power 70:-

  • High Power 70 allows you to scan at 70 kV with up to to 825 mA. The Athlon tube is res possible for this impressive value and is the reason why SOMATOM go. All offers the highest tube current in its class. High Power 70 achieves outstanding iodine contrast for extremely sharp images, even in small distal vessels. The high contrast also enables considerable reductions in contrast media, which bene fits your patients and reduces examination costs.
  • High Power 70 is based on the mass attenuation coefficient. For lower photon energies, the mass attenuation coefficient of iodine increases, whereas soft tissue is less energy dependent. This means that the iodine-to-soft-tissue contrast in the CT image will increase with low-kV imaging and lower average photon energy. This increase is extremely beneficial for contrast-enhanced studies

**Guide &GO: intuitive functions in CT-guided intervention:-CT-guided interventions play a major role in healthcare. In the U.S. alone, almost one in two sites performed at least three such procedures every day in 2016.11 Dedicated technology that can simplify workflows and maximize safety will help you optimally handle these procedures and patients.

*Tin Filter:-Interventional procedures usually require multiple scans. Tin Filter reduces dose in each of them. At the same time, it enhances contrast between soft tissue and air. This results in significantly less accumulated dose for both patients and interventionists. By reducing beam- hardening artifacts, Tin Filter is also an important improvement for other CT-guided intervention techniques, such as spinal injections.

*IMAR:-Artifacts due to metal implants or to the tool used in the interventional procedure (e.g., RF ablation) often hamper image quality. In these cases, accurate targeting can be impossible. iMAR9, which is smoothly integrated into the tablet workflow, reduces these artifacts – and improves confidence even in areas adjacent to metal implants.

*Simple and familiar tablet operation;-

  • SOMATOM go. All features Guide &GO, the first table based solution for CT-guided interventions. Built on the new mobile workflow, it is both familiar and easy to use. You can control the entire intervention with the tablet and the remote control – no need for ceiling mounted displays or joysticks – and the tablet cover means you can use it even in sterile environments.
  • Needle guidance is supported by the highly intuitive image manipulation functions we know from our smartphones, like zoom or pan. You can also save table positions for simple patient positioning and accelerate workflows with an auto-repeat function for sequential scans.
  • Additionally, Guide &GO voice control eases the tablet operation with dedicated vocal commands and keeps your hands free.

*Safe and accurate at low dose:-

  • In terms of safety, Tin Filter technology reduces dose to protect the patient and the interventionist.
  • For precision in your work, intuitive touchscreen functions at your fingertips help you quickly find the right position for the needle and measure relevant distances with the support of a magnifying glass functionality. Fast toggling between predefined image windowing or between the i-sequence and the spiral planning scan makes it easy to cross-check the anatomy. Laser crosshairs offer additional accuracy and confidence. Finally, the flexible goose-neck tablet holder can be adjusted to your individual needs for a safe and comfortable working environment.

*Sensitive scanning in pediatrics:-For young patients – and their parents – pediatric CT can be daunting. Children are often anxious about entering the scanner, and parents worry about radiation levels. An easy-to-use system that calms patients, reduces dose, and achieves high image quality will relax parents and children, and help you perform confidently in this advanced field.

*Stay close to your little patients:-With its mobile workflow, SOMATOM go. All offers easy pediatric CT scanning that puts patient and parent comfort first. Scan &GO enables preparation directly at the scanner, so you and the parents can stay with the child as long as possible. During the scan, the Halo moonlight entertains patients while you keep an eye on them with the gantry-integrated camera. These solutions also benefit image quality, since relaxed children create fewer motion artifacts.

*Minimize dose levels for children:-Minimizing dose is key in pediatrics, which is why SOMATOM go. All is equipped with targeted solutions for reducing dose in children: CARE kV, for instance, automatically selects the lowest kV for your patient, while CARE Child offers dedicated 70 kV protocols. Our 10 kV Steps feature personalizes dose, and CARE Dose4D™ tailors MAs levels to the size and shape of the patient. Additional advanced techno logiest – Tin Filter, Check &GO, and SAFIRE 12 iterative reconstruction – help you scan accurately at low doses and achieve excellent detail visualization for better patient care.

  •   Another tool that enhances image quality in challenging pediatric cases is Check &GO. By automatically checking for proper coverage and contrast distribution, it gives you the consistent results you need for confident diagnoses. After the scan, Recon &GO produces automated, standardized reconstructions that allow you to devote more time to your patient.

*CARE kV, 10 kV Steps, CARE Child:-

  • CARE kV automatically tailors tube voltage to each patient and clinical indication. With optimal kV levels in every case, CARE kV keeps dose low, making it ideal for pediatric imaging. It further simplifies the process by aligning the tube current with the selected kV.
  • Our unique 10 kV Steps feature also helps you tailor voltage to your patient. It can adjust the level at intervals of 10 kV for less dose and high contrast resolution.
  • CARE Child offers a range of targeted solutions for minimizing radiation exposure while maintaining diagnostic image quality. Pediatric pro tocols automatically set a low tube voltage – in most cases 70 kV – while CARE Dose4D optimizes dose distribution and offers special modulation curves.

**Standardized stroke workflow in neuro CT:-

* One in six people will suffer a stroke at some point in their life.13 Time is of the essence here: Reducing door- to-needle times by 15 minutes can extend patient survival chances by an average of 5 percent.14 We can help you achieve comprehensive stroke assessment with advanced tools that allow you to handle challenging stroke cases with speed and precision.
