OmniTom® is ideal for cranial procedures and is designed to deliver the highest quality non-contrast CT, CT angiography and CT perfusion scans. The combination of its rapid scan time, ultra-small footprint and immediate image viewing makes OmniTom® an indispensable tool for collecting real-time data on critically ill patients.

In addition to OmniTom®, Samsung will be showcasing its spectral CT with Photon Counting Detector (PCD), the next generation of CT technology. Samsung’s team will also be demonstrating a range of healthcare solutions in mobile CT, Digital Radiography and Ultrasound that are all designed to bridge the care-delivery gap and maximize efficiency to enhance the patient experience.
