Staging and monitoring of pneumonia patients
Chest radiography may help to stage or triage pneumonia patients quickly and may help to monitor the progression of the disease.1 This is in particular important for patients who should not be transported through the hospital to prevent contamination.
Cios mobile C-arms – an option for lung imaging2,3
Cios Alpha and Cios Spin can provide high-quality chest digital radiography (DR) images. The systems can be moved easily into front-door staging units as well as into ICUs. Cios user interfaces are designed for optimal usability in stressful situations. Cios mobile C-arms can be positioned flexibly according to the imaging needs in standing, sitting or lying patients. The systems offer antimicrobial coating, smooth and closed surfaces and approved cleaning and draping protocols. In addition, Cios Spin provides 3D imaging suitable to guide pulmonary interventions4.
