U.K. regional trauma center acquires Siemens CT system

Siemens Healthcare has announced it has installed a Somatom Definition Flash CT system at Musgrove Park Hospital of the Taunton and Somerset National Health Service (NHS) Foundation Trust.

The hospital, which became a regional trauma center in 2012, is using the system to support its cardiology services, in addition to providing oncology, vascular, and general trauma imaging.

The scanner has been installed in an imaging suite large enough to accommodate a full trauma team, with adjacent reporting and viewing facilities.

With two x-ray tubes, the Somatom Definition Flash is able to complete an entire heart scan in 250 msec, according to the company.
