2 An Innovation Leader in Technical and Clinical Solutions First CT from a med. manufacturer To produce cross sectional images First spiral CT scanner To leave the axial world First cardiac CT scanner To explore the heart First 0 MHU X-ray with TubeGuard (proactive tube failure prediction) since 2008 To scan without compromise First 64-slice CT scanner To routinely scan sub-mm resolution First Dual Source CT To alleviate compromise First routine Dual Energy scan To change the face of CT First Adaptive Scanner To adapt to any clinical need First Flash speed, lowest dose CT To make CT healthier 2008 First multimodality 3D imaging network To make reading fast & reproducible First patientcentric productivity FAST CARE for all Patients Page 2 October 2012 Waltraud Winter First raw-data based Iter. Recon* To save up to 60% dose * The information about this product is being provided for planning purposes.the product is pending 510(k) review, and is not yet commercially available in the U.S. Data on file. In clinicial practice, the use of SAFIRE may reduce CT patient dose depending on the clinical task, patient size, anatomical location, and clinical practice. A consultation with a radiologist and a physicist should be made to determine the appropriate dose to obtain diagnostic image quality for the particular clinical task. Dose reduction potential was determined by lowering dose by 60% and reconstructing with SAFIRE. Noise, CT numbers, homogenity, low-contrast resolution and high-contrast resolution were assessed in Gammex 438 phantom. Low dose data reconstructed with SAFIRE showed the same image quality compared to full dose data based on this test. Data on file. 2010
