Siemens Dual Energy Case Study

Small Business Healthcare Company

Introduction

This case study of a small business healthcare company is based on a November 2018 survey of Siemens Dual Energy customers by TechValidate, a 3rd-party research service. The profiled company asked to have their name blinded to protect their confidentiality.

“Siemens Dual Energy provides additional information that has helped reduce the need for rescans or additional follow-up exams.”

“Have used it because we use DECT dose neutral on all patients who get scanned on the DECT scanner(s). Easy to use, easy to teach.”

Challenges

The business challenges that led the profiled company to evaluate and ultimately select Siemens Dual Energy:

  • Believes that spectral imaging will be a deciding factor in all future CT purchases.

Use Case

The key features and functionalities of Siemens Dual Energy that the surveyed company uses:

  • When asked how often they scan patients using Dual Energy they said for every patient.
  • They agreed that dose neutrality, including features like Iterative Reconstruction and dose modulation, are important to the implementation of DE CT.
  • Believes it’s important to scan with Dual Energy with the following kinds of patients.
    • Trauma
    • Oncology

Results

The surveyed company achieved the following results with Siemens Dual Energy:

  • Since using Siemens Dual Energy, they have experienced the following benefits:
    • Access to additional information to characterize incidental findings earlier
    • Ability to better classify tumors
  • Dual Energy has helped improve their clinical operations in the following areas:
    • Follow-up scans
    • Re-scans
    • Contrast agent amount
    • Radiation from Virtual Non-contrast scans
  • Confirmed that automation in Rapid Results improved their workflow by minimizing the need for manual post-processing by the Radiologist or Technologist significantly.
  • With the benefit of increased CNR at low keVs provided by Monoenergetic+, they have been able to reduce contrast agent in 1-25% of patients.

Siemens Dual Energy Customer Statistic

62% of surveyed radiology professionals who scan with Dual Energy at least once a day confirmed that automation in Rapid Results improved their workflow by minimizing the need for manual post-processing by the Radiologist or Technologist significantly.
