"Consistent pressure to leverage imaging services and patient care in a fast
growing environment have made workflow and productivity top priorities for CT
image service providers across the U.S.," said Frost & Sullivan Industry Analyst
Roberto Aranibar. "The challenge for providers lies not only in increasing the
rate at which imaging procedures are performed, but also in delivering exams
that continue to meet physician and industry expectations for image quality,
radiation dose and patient care."
FAST (Fully Assisting Scanner Technologies) and CARE (Combined Applications
to Reduce Exposure), the two components of FAST CARE, potentially make it
possible for service providers to streamline workflow and maximize productivity
while maintaining high image quality with low radiation dose, and enabling the
delivery of patient-centric healthcare.
Siemens' FAST solutions are designed to simplify and expedite tasks for the
imaging technologist throughout a procedure—during planning, setup,
scanning, image reconstruction and data evaluation. It may reduce time-
intensive and technically difficult tasks to a single click of a mouse. The highly-
automated operation of FAST solutions also enables consistent delivery of high-
quality images.
For instance, FAST Planning automates scan and reconstruction ranges,
potentially speeding and simplifying the process of setting up an organ-targeted
scan. FAST Adjust may streamline workflow by replacing manual scan
parameter adjustment with a single mouse click. FAST also includes solutions
designed to improve workflow efficiency for specific clinical applications, such
as FAST Spine that automates the setup of reconstruction modes for individual
vertebrae and discs during spinal exams, a task that can take up to half an hour
when performed manually.
CARE kV is a feature that quickly and accurately optimizes kV and mA settings
according to each patient and exam type limiting the applied dose while
maintaining high image quality. CARE Profile promotes more active
management of dose in the user interface by displaying planned dose
