El nuevo algoritmo de CT de Siemens consigue cabeceo del FDA

Last Friday, Siemens Healthcare received FDA 510(k) clearance for its third-generation advanced modeled iterative reconstruction (ADMIRE) algorithm — their new imaging reconstruction algorithm for CT.

It's available now on the SOMATOM Force dual-source CT system, which got FDA approval in April, and it supplements the sinogram affirmed iterative reconstruction (SAFIRE) algorithm. That algorithm can reduce radiation dose by 60 percent, according to the company.

ADMIRE works by improving the reconstructed image quality and producing images with a natural image impression, which allows for low-dose imaging in many studies which previously could not be done.

New Fully Configured 80-slice CT in 2 weeks with Software Upgrades for Life

For those who need to move fast and expand clinical capabilities -- and would love new equipment -- the uCT 550 Advance offers a new fully configured 80-slice CT in up to 2 weeks with routine maintenance and parts and Software Upgrades for Life™ included.

ADMIRE can also help deliver improved resolution at high contrast edges because of the additional modeling loops it uses.
