A new Computed Tomography (CT) scanner with dedicated Radiation Therapy (RT) features, manufactured by of the largest international medical imaging equipment companies, has received US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 510(k) clearance.

RT images from the new scanner enable precise contouring and provide a personalized dose calculation, with a reduced number of workflow steps. A new imaging suite provides features such as integrated image assessment, patient marking, and contouring.

The SOMATOM Confidence RT Pro CT scanner and the optional new syngo.via RT Image Suite software are made by Siemens Healthineers (Erlangen, Germany).

The new scanner is intended to enable personalized scans together with standardization, efficiency, and reduced costs. The standard RT treatment plan of each patient is built on 120 kV CT images, to enable a controlled workflow and personalized scans optimized for image reconstruction, contouring, and dose calculation, using the DirectDensity algorithm. Additional features include iMAR metal artifact reduction, CARE kV, and a new detector.

The new scalable syngo.via RT Image Suite software is intended to help radiation oncologists with integrated image assessment, contouring, and patient marking, and uses a flexible client-server based architecture. The syngo.via can also be used with 4D Positron Emission Tomography (PET)/CT, multi-parametric Magnetic Resonance (MR), and dual energy and perfusion CT images for example.
