Newly released CT technology will be showcased at SCCT2021

Arlington, VA (July 12, 2021) — Device manufacturers will be displaying their latest technologies at the 2021 Society of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography (SCCT) Annual Scientific Meeting (SCCT2021) being held virtually July 16 – 17. The industry’s top computed tomography (CT) companies — Canon Medical, GE Healthcare, Philips Healthcare and Siemens Healthineers — have chosen SCCT2021 as a key platform to inform and connect with physicians about their products and services

“Siemens Healthineers is proud to partner with the Society of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography in support of its mission: to develop cardiac computed tomography through education, training, quality assurance and research,” said Matthew Dedman, Senior Director of Product Marketing, Computed Tomography, Siemens Healthineers – North America.

At this year's SCCT annual meeting, Canon Medical will be showcasing meaningful applications of artificial intelligence (AI) for cardiovascular imaging, which the company says will change the way clinicians read cardiac CT:

  • World's first ONE-beat spectral cardiac CTA, enabled by deep learning spectral.
  • Sharp, clear and distinct images, enabled by deep learning reconstruction.

To learn more, tune into the Canon sponsored symposium “Why atherosclerosis is all that really matters” with talks by James K. Min, MD, MSCCT & Jeroen Bax, MD, PhD or view their SCCT2021 offerings at https://us.medical.canon/news/events/scct/.

GE Healthcare will be sponsoring the symposium “Cardiac CT: Is it now an essential test for your heart team discussions?” with Patrick M. Donnelly, MBBCh BAO, MD, MRCP, FSCCT, as well as displaying:

At SCCT2021, Philips Healthcare will promote their newly released Spectral CT 7500 system, IQon Spectral CT and Incisive CT. Philips will be providing attendees with a symposium entitled “Next generation spectral CT for cardiovascular applications” presented by Tim Leiner, MD, PhD, FSCCT.

Siemens Healthineers will explore the untapped potential of cardiac imaging with Siemens Healthineers’ Dual Source CT, provide multi-modality imaging decision support with AI Rad Companion – Chest CT and teach about the prospects of photon counting at their symposium “Counting Detector Cardiac CT: Introduction and Outlook” with Thomas Allmendinger, PhD, FSCCT.

Recording of all sponsored symposia will be available online following the meeting at https://scct.org/page/Industrysponsorededucation.

SCCT strives to make its Annual Scientific Meeting the primary interactive forum of the cardiac CT community. Philippe Karam, Global Product Marketing Manager at GE Healthcare, states: “The CT technologies that GE Healthcare pioneered contributed to the development of cardiovascular imaging. However technologies and engineering alone are nothing. SCCT, by advocating for research, education and clinical excellence, is key to sharing knowledge, increasing the number of trained healthcare professionals, helping shift standards of care and guidelines and improving reimbursement. Only our joint efforts can improve health outcomes for patients through the effective use of cardiovascular CT.”
