Siemens Sensation 64

Used CT Scanner

Siemens Sensation 64 

The Siemens SOMATOM Sensation 64 Slice CT is the flagship of the award-winning Sensation series. The Siemens Sensation 64 was the first CT scanner with the ability to take 192 images of the heart per second. Like the Sensation 40 Slice, the Siemens Sensation 64 slice offers a very high routine isotropic resolution of 0.33mm, allowing it to visualize the smalles pathology with outstanding quality. The z-UHR option on the Siemens Sensation 64 offers an exceptional 0.24mm isotropic resolution, allowing it to clearly visualize the complex inner ear bones and joints. Siemens CARE dose reduction is also featured on the Sensation 64.
