Samsung Shows Off New Innovative Mobile CT

Samsung Electronics, a leader in medical imaging technology, will debut its OmniTom® mobile 16-slice computed tomography (CT) scanner at the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) 2017 Annual Meeting at McCormick Place in Chicago.

We’re told that OmniTom received 510(k) FDA clearance for the U.S. market on August 18 of this year, and attendees will get to see it for the first time at RSNA booth #2543 (South Building, Hall A).

“The release of OmniTom is the latest demonstration of Samsung’s leadership in CT imaging. OmniTom features an array of improvements from Samsung’s award-winning CereTom® CT scanner,” the company tells us. The improvements in question include:

  • Improved workflow: OmniTom is the world’s first mobile imaging device with omni-directional wheels, maximizing mobility and allowing easier and quieter movement in small spaces.
  • Superior image quality: 16-slice (0.625 mm per slice) advanced data acquisition system with effective dose optimization.
  • Expanded use: Maintains a small footprint ideal for mobile use while increasing the gantry opening to 40 cm for improved coverage of adult head and neck, and full body pediatric scanning.
  • Enhanced safety system: OmniTom features an internal drive system, making portability less strenuous, while also offering smart-sensing collision avoidance software to maximize control and patient safety.

“OmniTom embodies Samsung’s commitment to providing leading technologies to healthcare providers by combining our key values of Access, Accuracy and Efficiency,” said Dongsoo Jun, President of Health & Medical Equipment Business at Samsung Electronics and CEO of Samsung Medison. “We’ve made a CT product that’s lighter, more mobile, more accurate and faster, and we hope the many doctors and technicians here at RSNA will be able to use it to benefit their patients.”
