A 59-year-old male patient, suffering from consistent pain in the right ankle, presented for checkup. He had fallen onto rocks while walking on the beach. Physical examination revealed local swelling and abrasions. Conventional X-ray showed no signs of fracture in the right foot and ankle. Dual Energy CT (DECT) was performed for further evaluation.
The outcomes by Siemens Healthineers customers described herein are based on results that were achieved in the customer’s unique setting. Since there is no “typical” hospital and many variables exist (e.g., hospital size, case mix, level of IT adoption) there can be no guarantee that other customers will achieve the same results.
