Intelligent imaging. Exceeding excellence.

As the number and complexity of radiological procedures increases, staff demands can reach unsustainable levels, impacting consistent image quality. Although advanced CT scanners have the potential to expand precision medicine, this potential remains untapped far too often, especially in challenging clinical situations such as emergency imaging and advanced CT interventions.

SOMATOM X.ceed from Siemens Healthineers is a high-resolution, high-speed, low-dose CT scanner with a category-best imaging chain. With the unique guidance of myExam Companion and myNeedle Companion1, it enables elite performance of CT and personnel, plus excellent decisions in the most challenging clinical situations. Expand precision medicine and improve patient experience with SOMATOM X.ceed.

Intelligent navigation for enhanced consistency
No matter the user, patient or throughput, Companions guide you through time-critical procedures, including emergencies and CT interventions. This helps you interact easily, naturally and precisely with both patients and technology.

Patient-friendly design with an 82 cm bore
Mobile workflows and more natural patient communication help patients relax, easing tension or anxiety, which can be reduced even further thanks to a large bore and enhanced accessibility of the new multi-purpose table.
Consistent standards across your institution
myExam Companion, myNeedle Companion1, and Shui® — the design system of Siemens Healthineers — provide users with common interfaces across multiple modalities. Combined with digital solutions, they can help you redefine and standardize protocols across your institution, optimizing clinical workflow, staffing schedules, results and productivity.

Elite performance from door to diagnosis

While most CT systems excel in either power, scan speed, spatial resolution or temporal resolution, they compromise at least one of the other metrics. SOMATOM X.ceed hits benchmarks in each category thanks to an optimal combination of high temporal and spatial resolution, power, and scan speed designed to master the most challenging clinical situations at low dose. Plus, myExam Companion offers radiology teams automated guidance throughout. The result? Elite performance of both CT and personnel.
