Medical imaging giant Samsung recently unleashed its latest innovation: the OmniTom, a 16-slice CT scanner. After receiving FDA clearance in August, the machine was scheduled to debut at the Radiological Society of North America’s annual conference in Chicago.
The OmniTom is a part of Samsung’s AccE campaign, which stands for Access, Accuracy, and Efficiency. According to a press release, the OmniTom is a step up from the CereTom, an 8-slice portable CT scanner. Aside from being ideal for cranial procedures and keeping a small footprint, this new scanner features several additional advancements, including:
“We’ve made a CT product that’s lighter, more mobile, more accurate and faster,” said Dongsoo Jun, President of Health & Medical Equipment Business at Samsung Electronics and CEO of Samsung Medison. “We hope the many doctors and technicians here at RSNA will be able to use it to benefit their patients.”
