Multiply your potential

The SOMATOM Definition Flash offers the widest advanced clinical portfolio ever in CT: From dose-neutral Dual Energy CT to whole organ perfusion. Find out how these ground-breaking innovations turn into unique benefits in daily clinical CT practice.

Stellar Detector

The SOMATOM Definition Flash, with its two fully integrated Stellar Detectors, generates ultra-thin slices with very high spatial resolution for an extremely high level of visual detail, but is also designed for ultra-low-signal imaging. Its unprecedented image quality can enhanceobese imaging as well as low-kV examinations in pediatric and Dual Energy imaging.

C-Level view

C-level executives are faced with some challenges when it comes to purchasing new CT scanners. They have to run a successful and prosperous business while also taking the best possible care of their patients. Today’s devices – like the SOMATOM Definition Flash – offer many more options, and training and service become the keys to successfully exploiting your investment’s maximum potential.

Being FAST

Be FAST: Fully Assisting Scanner Technologies make time-consuming and complex procedures faster and accelerate your workflow to new levels. With the FAST platform, the SOMATOM Definition Flash delivers the shortest possible time from positioning the patient on the CT table to reviewing the first images. This gives medical professionals more time to take better care of their patients.

Taking CARE

Take CARE: Combined Applications to Reduce Exposure provide you with brilliant image quality at the lowest possible dose. It makes CT safer, especially for the most sensitive patients like women and children. With the new CARE platform, the SOMATOM Definition Flash can lower radiation exposure to previously unheard-of levels.

Pediatric CT

Although radiation exposure is getting lower with conventional CTs, the use of sedation, anesthesia, and controlled ventilation is still very common. These come with risks and drawbacks, especially for children. The SOMATOM Definition Flash with the new FAST CARE platform automatically ensures an unparalleled low dose in all examinations. With its unrivalled patient-friendliness and safety, Flash Spiral scanning makes sedation and controlled ventilation a thing of the past.

Oncology CT

Oncology CT poses its own challenges to clinicians. Patient preparation, accumulated dose, and the monitoring of chemotherapy or anti-angiogenesis treatments make oncology CT anything but easy.
The SOMATOM Definition Flash’s low-dose capabilities, its ability to scan without breath-hold, its Dual Energy applications, and the potential for covering whole organs for CT perfusion make it the preferred device for radiation therapy planning and monitoring.

Trauma CT

Immediate whole-body CT scanning is of the essence during the "golden hour” of trauma. But unwanted patient motion, limited scan ranges, and time-consuming patient preparation create unnecessary stress in the trauma bay.
Get the most out of the golden hour with the SOMATOM Definition Flash – in every patient. Its unmatched Flash Spiral scan speed of 458 mm/s, its immense power reserves, and the highest temporal resolution all act together to freeze motion while delivering the industry’s highest spatial resolution.

Neuro CT

Neuro CT ranges from plain non-contrast, over spine, and inner-ear to whole-brain CT perfusion imaging. Separating vessels safely from bone, differentiating fresh from old bleeding, and reconstructing spine and discs is difficult and time-consuming. The SOMATOM Definition Flash, including FAST CARE and Dual Energy, always offers a second contrast, lets you perform whole-brain perfusion and dynamic angiographies up to 48 centimeters, and its iterative reconstruction redefines image quality and low-dose neuro CT imaging.

Cardiac CT

The heart is the organ that has been challenging generations of CTs. Patient exclusion is high because of high and irregular heart rates. The SOMATOM Definition Flash allows you to scan any patient independent of heart rate and also provides Dual Energy information. In addition, it quantifies the hemodynamic relevance of a stenosis for sound and sustainable treatment decisions.

Dual Energy CT

Dual Energy CT (DECT) is one of the most exciting developments in radiology in recent history. The SOMATOM Definition Flash Dual Source CT, which applies all state-of-the-art dose-saving techniques for Dual Energy, delivers dose-neutral imaging with unlimited applications for all possible clinical fields, including the heart.
