SOMATOM Drive with Dual Source technology is equipped with unique 10 kV Steps. With CARE kV, this allows a precise user-independent kV selection. That allows optimum image quality and precise dose for more patients.
Drive precision for all with a Dual Source CT scanner
Patients of all ages, sizes and conditions arrive in your facility daily, and you’re measured by how effectively you can care for each of them. They and their referring physicians need fast, clinically accurate information.
From Siemens Healthineers, the SOMATOM Drive Computed Tomography (CT) scanner with Dual Source technology boosts your performance, empowers your routines and expands your capabilities. Reach a higher level of clinical confidence in your images across many different case types while still meeting your efficiency goals.

Be ready for new business opportunities
Dual Source technology
Stellar Infinity detector with integrated iterative reconstruction
StellarInfinity detectors with integrated iterative reconstruction (IR) drive a new level of integration of software and hardware. The high resolution of the Stellar Infinity detectors creates excellent image quality with reduced noise.
CARE Screen with Tin Filter
The CARE Screen with Tin Filters on both tubes allows you to lower the dose while maintaining image quality. The filters optimize the X-ray spectrum by filtering out the parts of the X-ray beam that are rarely useful for imaging. This combination of low doses and high diagnostic reliability makes SOMATOM Drive ideal for future applications such as spinal diagnostics and orthopedic examinations.
Straton® MX Sigma X-ray tubes and Sigma generators
SOMATOM Drive is equipped with the new Straton® MX Sigma X-ray tube and Sigma generators and High Power 70 & High Power 80 that enable low dose scanning while freezing motion at maximum speed. It’s optimized for low kV imaging to reduce scan time while maintaining exceptional image quality. SOMATOM Drive uses the power of both tubes for fast scanning.
Unique 10 kV Steps
SOMATOM Drive delivers 2 x 100 kW generator power that achieves precise imaging for any patient. With both tubes complimenting each other (even at low kV), a high table feed, ultra-fast data transmission, and a gantry that can perform a full rotation in 0.28 seconds, you can enable Superfast Scanning with SOMATOM Drive.
Adaptive 4D Spiral
The Adaptive 4D Spiral achieves whole-brain and whole-organ coverage for perfusion imaging and enables low-dose CT angiography and dynamic CT diagnostic confidence with 4D imaging that exceeds the detector width. Act faster and be more confident in your treatment decisions than ever before. The new Adaptive 4D Spiral visualizes vascular flow or anatomical motion with up to 48 cm dynamic coverage on SOMATOM Drive.
With a single high-power input converted to dual high-power output, the new Power Buffer helps provide access to Dual Source technology where infrastructure has previously been a limitation.
