Siemens Healthcare celebrated the 6,000th installation of the SOMATOM Emotion CT scanner at the newly opened Portsmouth Imaging Center, Newport Hospital, RI.

The enhanced 16-slice SOMATOM Emotion will aid the Portsmouth Imaging Center in performing routine examinations such as brain, chest, and abdomen examinations, as well as high-end, detailed tests such as high-resolution CT angiography.

The Siemens SOMATOM Emotion features an economical price point, low lifecycle costs, and compact design—using only 200 square feet. With Siemens’ ongoing enhancements to this system, it now offers detailed images with a slice thickness as small as 0.5 mm and accelerated image reconstruction times.

Newport Hospital has received the Magnet designation from the American Nurses Association and Baby Friendly designation from the World Health Organization and UNICEF.
