  • Maximize quality of care
  • Optimize staff deployment and care delivery
  • Achieve high-end image quality at the point of care


Características e Benefícios

Staff move an ICU patient bed along a hospital hallway

Providing CT scans of the head for critically ill patients, e.g. from Intensive Care Units (ICU) is crucial but often challenging.

  • Patient transports from the ICU to the radiology department are associated with complex logistical hurdles that can require up to five staff members.1
  • Inhouse patient transports bear an increased risk of complications for patients: >71% of ICU patients experience adverse events during transport specifically to the CT suite.2
  • Scanning of ICU patients at the radiology department impacts CT availability for other patients by blocking off more than double the time of conventional exams.3

SOMATOM will fundamentally change the way you care for your ICU patients suffering from acute and critical head conditions.

Experience mobile head CT scanning with SOMATOM image quality right at the patient’s bedside:

  • Eliminating transport to the radiology department can prevent related complications and allow your staff to concentrate on what matters most: providing optimal care for every patient in the ICU department.
  • You can get images to diagnose and treat sudden changes in patients’ condition faster, potentially reducing the length and cost of hospital stays.
  • Offering mobile CT imaging directly in the ICU allows the radiology department to maintain an optimized schedule and utilize their staff more efficiently.

Reduce patient transports

SOMATOM permits CT imaging of the head directly on the ICU ward, which reduces complications associated with patient transportation from intensive care wards to the radiology department.

Performing CT scans at the patient's bedside helps staff to reach fast treatment decision.

Optimize staff deployment

ICU staff can focus more on their core tasks and care for their patients when they do not need to accompany the transports.

Reduction of physical burden and fatigue on staff as the transfer of the patient to a dedicated scan table is not required anymore.

Achieve high image quality at the point of care

The Touch UI makes scanner operation intuitive and easy.

Mobile CT imaging reduces the number of ICU patient scans in the radiology department, potentially resulting in more streamlined utilization of stationary systems and staff..
