St. Louis pediatric provider deploys Siemens CT
St. Louis Children's Hospital in St. Louis has installed a Somatom Definition AS CT scanner from Siemens Healthcare.

The company said its Adaptive Dose Shield addresses the dose issue by assisting in blocking the unnecessary dose before and after the spiral scan. The technology, which includes Care Dose 4D dose modulation, couples components, such as a large-volume coverage area, with a 200 cm scan range and up to 330 m/sec rotation time.
