North Tees and Hartlepool NHS Foundation Trust has received the first CT container solution from Siemens Healthineers, which will provide a separate environment for the scanning of non-COVID-19 related examinations. With chest CT scans vital in the identification of viral pneumonia and tracking disease progression, CT plays a critical role in diagnosis and aiding clinical decision-making in the management of COVID-19 patients at the trust.
To facilitate access to scanning resources throughout the NHS, Siemens Healthineers ramped up CT production and worked closely with Lamboo Mobile Medical to source containers purpose-built for Somatom go CT systems.
“Previously championed by those involved in mobile lung screening initiatives, the Somatom go series allows ultra low dose imaging while the mobile workflow makes the CT container solution entirely self- contained, eliminating the need for a control room,” states Siemens.
