Radiochirurgia Zagreb uses Siemens SOMATOM Definition Edge CT device with ultra low radiation dose for fast computer tomography with 384 reconstructed slices.

With around a quarter of therapies adjusted after response assessment, a key challenge in oncology is finding out if the tumor is responsive to therapy.

SOMATOM definition Edge is making therapy response assessment faster, more reliable, and easier to manage which makes the process easier for doctors and for patients as well.
 

Oncology

With around a quarter of therapies adjusted after response assessment, a key challenge in oncology is finding out if the tumor is responsive to therapy. Making therapy response assessment faster, more reliable, and easier to manage directly benefits the workforce as well as the patients. Investing into a higher quality therapy that uses smaller radiation doses and an early stages tumor locating capabilities using a CT device gives this technology a greater role in preventive care, as well.

The new SOMATOM Definition Edge enables excellent tissue evaluation, allows for the scanning of pediatric and obese patients without dose discussions, and facilitates a minimized sedation and breath hold
