This multislice computer tomograph with an economical two slice system is the entry model for day-to-day clinical routine, e.g. in clinics utilizing teleradiology, as well as ENT and urology practices, dental surgeons, orthopedic physicians and general practitioners. The Somatom Spirit acquires two slices per rotation for the price of a single-slice scanner. With a gantry aperture of 70 centimeters and a patient table load of 200 kg, the patient spectrum of the Somatom Spirit is virtually unlimited. The wide gantry opening and short gantry depth ensure easy patient positioning and access. The esthetic design also helps to alleviate patient fears of a CT examination.

Among the multitude of well-designed devices of this kind, this one stands out by its additive design and postmodern references while maintaining an altogether unobtrusive and light impression.
