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,
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)
