A 13-day-old female newborn suffering from desaturation was scheduled for a surgical operation on an arterial switch. A cardiac CT scan was ordered to evaluate the anatomy of the heart, the great vessels and the coronary arteries prior to the operation.
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.
