2D post processing

  • Image zoom and pan
  • Image manipulations
    • Averaging, subtraction
    • Reversal of gray-scale values
    • Mirroring
  • Advanced image algorithms
    • Low Contrast Enhancement for improving low contrast detectability
    • High Contrast Enhancement for increased sharpness of high contrast structures
    • Advanced Smoothing Algorithm edge preserving and smoothing filter, dedicated to cardiac exams


  • Scan mode for contrast bolus triggered data acquisition.
  • Significant improvement of the planning procedure and diagnosis by enabling an optimum spiral scan start after contrast injection.
  • The procedure is based on repetitive low-dose monitoring scans at one slice level and analysis of the time density curve in a region-of-interest (ROI).

CARE tin

  • Automated real-time tube current adjustment for best diagnostic image quality at lowest possible dose, independent of patient size and anatomy
  • Fully automated dose management for adults and children with up to 68% dose reduction

CARE Filter

Specially designed X-ray exposure filter installed at the tube collimator. Up to 25% dose reduction with increased image quality.


  • Real-time topogram
  • Manual interruption possible once desired anatomy has been imaged
