Be ahead of your time

When stroke strikes, be ahead of your time.

Advance stroke care – and deliver outcomes that matter to patients
Larger time window for mechanical thrombectomy

In stroke management, latest studies1) opened the time window for mechanical thrombectomy to 24 hours. This improves stroke treatment for a larger part of the 15 million people suffering a stroke each year.2) For you, however, it means that stroke care turns into a double challenge: Besides having to treat each stroke patient as fast as possible, you also have to be ready to treat more patients.


See how precision imaging with optimal image quality and sharp images of small moving objects, coupled with an optimally adapted in-hospital stroke workflow allowed a young stroke sufferer to go on as if nothing had happened.

How many patients who received endovascular thrombectomy within 24 hours after the onset of an ischemic stroke suffered less disability than patients receiving standard medical care? Make your pick!

As your partner in stroke management, we keep you ahead of your time. Our industry-leading technologies let you speed up stroke care and transform care delivery – from diagnosis and triaging to treatment and follow-up.

Mobile stroke unit

In stroke care, it’s crucial to differentiate ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke at the earliest possible stage. With our solutions for mobile stroke units, you can transform care delivery by ruling out bleeding in the ambulance, and triaging patients to the appropriate clinical institution faster.

Your benefits:

  • Industry-leading comprehensive solution that is taking standard of care for stroke to the streets
  • Reach, diagnose, and treat potential stroke patients faster by bringing the CT scanner to the patient at the point of care

Did you know?
Images can be sent to the hospital before the ambulance arrives, which helps determine the optimal treatment method early on

Standard workflow

To confirm ischemic stroke, detect the location of the vessel occlusion, and evaluate the brain damage, you need to rely on excellent diagnostic imaging. CT or MR imaging is considered the gold standard per international stroke guidelines. Our dedicated CT and MR stroke protocols provide the relevant information on the severity of the damage so you can make confident diagnostic decisions fast.

Your benefits:
  • Uncompromised image quality throughout the CT scanner portfolio – with optimized signal-to-noise and contrast-to-noise ratio for excellent gray-white matter differentiation and contrast enhancement
  • Standardized scanning and post-processing workflow – as well as fully automated or semi-automated perfusion post-processing to enhance precision medicine
  • Fast scan, analysis, and decision support for endovascular mechanical thrombectomy planning, ongoing triage, and treatment pathway. Every second counts in stroke, because “time is brain”

Did you know?
With our post-processing application bundle CT Neurology Package, you will get all the relevant post-processing tools for stroke evaluation: syngo .CT Neuro Perfusion, syngo .CT Neuro DSA, syngo .CT Dynamic Angio, and many more.

Nexaris Angio-CT suite

Reducing door-to-groin time for stroke patients at your institution is critical. Optimize clinical processes and perform CT diagnostics and angio stroke treatment in the same room. In our Nexaris Angio-CT suite, patients can even stay on the same table for diagnostics and treatment – translating into time savings and enhanced safety. In a two-room set-up, you can even use the systems independently.

Your benefits:

  • System combination that shares one table for diagnostics and treatment, making patient transfer unnecessary
  • Optimized, faster, and easier stroke management that supports enhanced patient outcomes
  • Potential cost savings thanks to reduced workflow time and improved neurological outcomes
  • High‐end care for centers of excellence

Did you know?

  • You can dramatically reduce time to reperfusion in the endovascular treatment of acute stroke patients by eliminating time spent on transporting and transferring patients
  • You can maximize system utilization: The CT and angio system can be used separately for daily business when installed in a two‐room setup with a sliding door in between
  • It’s an ideal solution for emergency departments with stroke specialization

Angio-only solution

Fast angio-only stroke solution

Stroke patients need medical help extremely fast. Advance therapy outcomes with our groundbreaking angio‐only solution ARTIS icono.The system delivers fast and precise cone-beam CT images. And by combining pre-procedural imaging and treatment in your angio suite for stroke patients, you can save up to one hour in stroke care.4)

Your benefits:

  • Transfer potential LVO stroke patients directly to the angio suite
  • With syngo DynaCT Multiphase it is for the first time possible to visualize cerebral collateral vessels with time resolved DynaCT, depicting 10 different time points within a period of 60 seconds
  • Bleeding visualization and stroke classification can be done right in the angio suite
  • Perform both diagnostic imaging and stroke treatment with one system

Did you know?

  • With syngo DynaCT Sine Spin5), artefacts in the skull base are reduced, to visualize bleedings in the whole brain
  • According to peers at Göttingen, the angio-only solution leads to a door-to-groin time reduction of approximately 30 minutes: Find out more at

Mobile CT solution


One important element in the care of hospitalized stroke patients is follow-up CT imaging. This becomes a time-intensive process if the patient is lying in an intensive care unit (ICU) due to her or his severe condition. Under these circumstances you want your staff to be able to perform diagnostics quickly and make treatment decisions right away and with confidence. Our mobile head CT scanner SOMATOM provides access to consistent and reliable SOMATOM image quality, right at your patient’s bedside.

Your benefits:

  • Reduce patient transports for CT imaging throughout the hospital. This has various benefits reaching from less potential for clinical complications during patient transport or decreased risks for hospital-acquired infections.
  • Optimize staff deployment by letting ICU staff stay at their ward and continue care for ICU patients. With our mobile CT scanner, there is no need for them to accompany patient transports for head CT examinations.
  • Achieve high image quality at the point of care and rely on SOMATOM components e.g. Stellar detector and SAFIRE iterative reconstruction.

Did you know?

SOMATOM is completely self-shielded which enables in-room scanning. Due to that, staff can stay next to the patient during the examination and other patients can stay in the room.
