UPMC Salvator Mundi International Hospital: state-of-the-art technology for diagnostic imaging

23 February 2022

Precision radiology tests for a high-specialization international hospital.

Technology is at the core of UPMC Salvator Mundi International Hospital in Rome, a reference point for international high specialty care, open 24/7. This hospital’s Diagnostic Imaging Center is in fact equipped with a new SOMATOM Force CT Scanner by Siemens Healthineers.

What are the advantages for patients? First of all, up to 80% of radiation reduction thanks to the introduction of CARE (Combined Applications to Reduce Exposures). At the same time, faster execution, minimal invasiveness, high precision and image resolution, both in 2D and 3D. High definition is also useful to study small anatomical parts, such as small vessels of the inner ear, and more complex structures, such as those in the cranial base. The latest generation CT scan at UPMC Salvator Mundi International Hospital is able to analyze an entire organ in one single rotation with maximum accuracy and speed: only 1 second for a chest CT scan and less than 5 seconds for a total body scan.

It enables to reach the highest diagnostic quality standards currently available in Cardio-CT, also allowing to test obese patients suffering from atrial fibrillation or with a high or unstable heart rate.

The SOMATOM Force CT Scanner by Siemens Healthineers is also particularly suitable for infants and toddlers (equipped with a pediatric cradle) and frail patients.

In oncology diagnostics, the advanced instrumental equipment of the SOMATOM Force CT Scanner allows a reliable and repeatable imaging review: lesions (pulmonary, hepatic, lymph node and generic) are segmented and displayed in 3D, in an automated lesion marking process and growth rate generation, which accelerates follow-up and significantly reduces reviewing variability.
