Siemens Healthineers Gets FDA’s 510(k) Clearance for CT Scanner

September 15, 2021

Siemens Healthineers has received the FDA’s 510(k) clearance for its single-source computed tomography (CT) scanner, the Somatom X.ceed.

The CT scanner combines high speed and high resolution to simplify CT-guided procedures, according to the Malvern, Pa.-based subsidiary of the German corporation Siemens.

The high-speed scanner can be used in a variety of diagnostic procedures, including cardiac and trauma imaging, as it reduces “motion artifacts when scanning moving structures, such as the heart,” the company says.
