Solutions for Stroke Imaging
By combining the SOMATOM Scope with a mobile stroke unit, there is the potential for faster access to imaging with the capability to conduct CT angiography (CTA) and also deliver tPA directly in the field – while transporting the patient to the nearest comprehensive stroke center. This method can potentially eliminate wasted time in the ED and enable faster door to angio time for intervention.
The SOMATOM Scope is a 16-slice CT scanner with high image quality in a small footprint with low power requirements. The SOMATOM Scope also leverages many of the core technologies that are employed across the entire portfolio of SOMATOM CT scanners – making it the ideal solution for a mobile imaging setting.
With the SOMATOM Scope CT, providers on board the mobile stroke unit can perform routine non-contrast and CTA imaging of the brain.
