Siemens Healthineers CT Lung Cancer Solutions for the Federal Government

Nov 21, 2016

Each year lung cancer kills more people than breast, colon and prostate cancer combined1. With an estimated 74% of veterans being past or present smokers2, the veteran population is at an increased risk of developing lung cancer. The key to improved patient outcomes is early detection. Our CT technology is designed to optimize acquisition for reliable diagnosis and clinical accuracy; leading to earlier detection, maximum efficiency and better overall care at a lower cost. Features include:

  • Consistent Acquisition at Low Dose
  • Efficient Reading with syngo®.via
  • Streamlined Reporting and Program Management

 

Rural veterans have higher smoking rates and lung cancer mortality rates than their urban counterparts3. Reaching those veterans that live outside of major cities is of utmost importance. That is why Siemens offers an RV Solution which allows for maximum mobility and greater reach. The mobile RV for Lung Cancer Screening features fast and easy image transfer with high speed wireless connection, is ready to scan in minutes and doesn’t require a commercial driver’s license.
