Intelligent imaging. Excellence empowered.

The SOMATOM® X.cite single source CT scanner, combined with myExam Companion, launches a new era of intelligent imaging. 

myExam Companion guides users intuitively through any procedure, adjusting key parameters to suit individual patients. This allows technologists to unlock the full potential of this new high-end system, including its Vectron® X-ray tube and large 82 cm bore. No matter the patient or complexity of the procedure, SOMATOM X.cite and myExam Companion together enable users to reduce unwarranted variations and generate consistent, comprehensive results.

Discover the innovative features of SOMATOM X.cite and learn how it empowers excellence in computed tomography.


Intelligent navigation for enhanced consistency

myExam Companion is a new approach to CT operation, one that’s designed to make technologists’ work easier and more efficient.

  • Interactive guidance: myExam Companion guides users through procedures via intuitive interfaces, simple, natural language and easy-to-follow visuals, even on unfamiliar CT systems.
  • Patient-specific support: The system optimizes acquisition and reconstruction parameters for each individual, letting users focus on the patient and on consistent acquisition.
  • Comprehensive, consistent results: Intelligent imaging technology works with technologists to unlock the full potential of high-end features, helping reduce unwarranted variations.

Patient-friendly design with an 82 cm bore

SOMATOM X.cite is designed to transform how patients interact with both technologists and the CT system, ultimately helping to improve how they perceive their care itself.

  • Patient-centric features: The large, 82 cm bore and Patient Observation Camera are designed specifically to help both patients and users relax, making it ideal for obese patients and trauma, orthopedic or interventional procedures.
  • More time for patients: myExam Companion performs key tasks in the background so users can focus on their patients. The tablet-based mobile workflow maximizes the time users spend table-side.
  • Support for compliance: Enhanced interfaces like the Visual Patient Instruction (VPI) and the Patient Observation Camera can improve compliance by making communication with the patient easier and more natural.

Personalized imaging

Comprehensive information can help radiologists with assessment no matter the patient or procedure.

  • High power and resolution: The Vectron® X-ray tube and the StellarInfinity detector® are part of an outstanding imaging chain that makes SOMATOM X.cite uniquely equipped to improve personalization.
  • Comprehensive information, no matter what: myExamCompanion calculates coronary segmentations, plus spine and rib unfolding, with zero clicks.

Consistent standards across your institution

With transparent and consistent CT throughput, fleet managers can set their own diagnostic benchmarks.

  • Centralized consistency: With myExam Companion and the teamplay cloud application, you can redefine and standardize protocols from one central location.
  • Standardization without disruption: With centralized access, standardizing protocols across your institution doesn’t have to disrupt daily CT operations.
  • Sharing made simple: With a shared visual logic and scan philosophy, it’s easy to optimize clinical workflow, staffing schedules, results and productivity.
