Do you find these healthcare trends challenging?
To help you thrive, we have developed a family of CT scanners that lets you deliver better outcomes to more patients: the SOMATOM® go. platform comprises the CT scanners SOMATOM go.Now, SOMATOM go.Up, SOMATOM go.All, and SOMATOM go.Top – as well as our dedicated radiotherapy CT scanners SOMATOM go.Sim and SOMATOM go.Open Pro.
Did you know that the SOMATOM go. platform originates from the medical community? It was co-created with 500 of our customers, from CEOs to the wonderful people who care for patients every single day. Based on their input, our engineers built the CT platform – and designed it specifically to overcome the obstacles associated with acquiring, operating, and maintaining a CT scanner.
SOMATOM go.Open Pro
SOMATOM go.Top is built for personalization of processes and care, allowing every operator to optimally adapt to individual patients and indications – and produce excellent CT results for the full clinical spectrum.
Standardizing procedures and results, SOMATOM go.All enables all users to confidently take on advanced fields in computed tomography – while interacting with patients in a more personalized way than ever before.
SOMATOM go.Up opens up the field of preventive care for routine operations, so that providers profit from advanced clinical results and from expanding their CT business while keeping an eye on profitability.
If you are looking to replace your previous system or just starting out in CT imaging, SOMATOM go.Now makes high-quality care accessible and helps you run a successful CT business.
SOMATOM go.Sim is a dedicated CT simulator that can increase workforce productivity and optimize clinical operations. Spend less time managing CT simulation and more time focusing on patients.
SOMATOM go.Open Pro is a dedicated CT simulator that expands precision medicine so you can bring individualized therapy to more patients than ever before. Push the boundaries to better treat the most challenging cases.
FAST 3D Camera
The SOMATOM go. platform introduces an entirely new approach to operating a CT scanner. Built around a Mobile Workflow, it features a line-up of innovative solutions, including a tablet and remote control. Experience an unparalleled level of flexibility, mobility, and patient-friendliness in daily CT procedures.
The FAST 3D Camera2) helps your team provide first-time-right scans, manage tight schedules, and potentially examine more patients. It captures the patient’s shape, position, and height in three dimensions. Using infrared measurement, it even recognizes body contours. This is particularly useful, for example, when patients are wearing thicker clothes
myNeedle Companion helps simplify even complex image-guided needle procedures with targeted needle path planning and guidance as well as image fusion. Dedicated in-room control options offer you the flexibility to work as you prefer – with or without an assitant. The patient-side system control includes an in-room tablet, i-joystick, and footswitch. And the ceiling-mounted in-room monitor displays the clinical images.

syngo.via View&Go is your intuitive multimodaltiy reading and viewing software-only solution equipped with a wide range of clinical tools. You can start reading straight away and evaluate your studies with ease - located in one familiar and intuitive environment.
Dedicated technologies: Expand your clinical portfolio
The SOMATOM go. platform allows you to cover a broad range of clinical fields. Built on intuitive technologies and workflows, it enables all users to deliver excellent results in routine examinations such as oncology and orthopedic exams. Additionally, all SOMATOM go. CT scanners feature dedicated solutions for safe and easy CT-guided interventions. Some members of the SOMATOM go. family also offer great capabilities in acute care or cardiac CT, for example.
All CT scanners of the SOMATOM go. platform come with low installation costs. Thanks to gantry-integrated computers and a flexible room concept, you no longer need to invest in a separate control room. Whatever concept you will choose, you are fully protected while the X-ray is on.
And once you are up and running, we will not leave you alone. Beyond the initial investment, there are recurring operational costs affecting your bottom line. The SOMATOM go. platform is well equipped to help you with them as well. At the core of their design the scanners of the platform enable lower electrical consumption compared to previous models4) and may even allow for reduction of the contrast media using the High Power technology.
syngo Virtual Cockpit is designed to assist scan procedures from a distance. Enabled by syngo Expert-i, expert colleagues receive access to the scanner and can support less experienced technologists – for reproducible results across your entire CT system fleet.

Dose reduction potential as a result of noise reduction
Not available for SOMATOM go.Now
In clinical practice, the use of SAFIRE may reduce CT patient dose depending on the clinical task, patient size, anatomical location, and clinical practice. A consultation with a radiologist and a physicist should be made to determine the appropriate dose to obtain diagnostic image quality for the particular clinical task.
