MLMH offers more patient centric diagnostic imaging with new Samotom go.Up 64-slice CT Scanner

Innovative CT scanner delivers high image quality and low radiation dose for all patients
The Medicine Lodge Memorial Hospital is pleased to announce it has recently installed the SOMATOM® go.Up CT scanner from Siemens Healthineers. Operated via tablet and remote control, the new scanner enables technologists to remain with patients during scan preparation, allowing our CT technologists to maximize the patient experience. This is especially helpful when imaging the elderly who may need a little support with the CT exam or when imaging young children. Another major feature of the SOMATOM go. is the ability to reduce artifact from implanted metal devices, making CT scanning possible for patients with spine fixation, knee and hip implants, dental fillings, pacemakers, etc.
"In our continued efforts to deliver the best patient care, our new scanner incorporates dose-reduction technologies along with patient-centric features that streamline the scan making for a comfortable and relaxed patient experience" said Kevin White, Hospital Administrator.
The SOMATOM go.Up can image all body regions and is able to allow visualization of small diagnostic details by using information from 64 slices. With the added benefit of a Stellar integrated detector, tin filter technology and the new Chronon® X-ray tube, the SOMATOM go.Up delivers exceptional scan speed and outstanding image quality. It also uses some of the lowest radiation doses achievable for a 64-slice CT. The combination of all these features gives us broader clinical capabilities to do more advanced scans.
The SOMATOM go.Up utilizes SAFIRE iterative reconstruction to help reduce dose for a wide range of applications.* The SOMATOM go.Up uses Fully Assisting Scanner Technologies (FAST) that help simplify and automate time-consuming, complex procedures, thus supporting our clinical team at every stage of the CT examination helping them spend more time with the patients.
The technology is so groundbreaking that it was even named the Best New Radiology Device introduced in 2017, by the distinguished industry publication Aunt Minnie.1 Most importantly, the SOMATOM go. helps our practice deliver best-in-class imaging while consistently reducing radiation dose for our patients.
At Medicine Lodge Memorial Hospital our mission is to provide excellent healthcare services and promote optimal health for our community members. We invite you to discover exceptional skill and extraordinary care right here at MLMH. Please contact us at (620) 886-5949 to schedule with one of our elite providers, today.
