Diagnose a stroke in time with solutions that can help promote teamwork and data sharing
In stroke care, a lot of time is lost during stroke diagnosis and in activating the stroke team for treatment. Inefficient systems and inconclusive studies slow every step of the process. The good news: we are making progress to speed up diagnosis and get patient data wherever needed. Our solutions focus on sharing data across caregivers and improving workflow efficiency to help you get eligible stroke patients to treatment on time.
Speed up diagnosis by sharing data across providers and improving workflow
During stroke diagnosis, valuable time is wasted on inefficient imaging processes and unnecessary repeat scans. We aim to automate imaging processes so you can provide fast high-quality imaging results to drive timely and confident diagnostic decisions. Our solutions support end-to-end sharing so all stroke team members have timely access to diagnostic stroke results.
Improve consistency and speed in CT
of exams deliver spectral results with detector-based spectral CT
Spectral CT 7500
CT is the primary imaging modality in an emergency department for patients with stroke or traumatic brain injury. Image quality of neurology scans is of primary importance to identify neurological disorders. Spectral results such as monoenergetic images, iodine maps and Z-effective images are delivered 100% of the time. They provide improved image quality through enhanced grey/white matter differentiation and reduction in beam hardening artifact, as well as additional information to support a differential diagnosis.
This application automatically calculates and generates qualitative and quantitative information which may help you determine areas of reduced cerebral blood flow,1 aiding identification of salvageable tissue in acute stroke. Results can be shared via email2 for convenient reviewing.
Fast high-quality imaging for wider range of patients
Up to 3times faster scans3
SmartSpeed delivers fast high-quality imaging for a wider range of patients supporting 97% of current clinical MR protocols5. It utilizes Compressed SENSE speed engine and an award-wining AI algorithm applied directly at the MR reconstruction chain to increase MRI department productivity with up to 3 times faster scans and to provide outstanding image quality with 65% higher resolution3.
A variety of MR Neuro applications help you to deliver a confident diagnosis, including EPI and TSE Diffusion, T2* Perfusion, Susceptibility Weighted Imaging (SWIp), Black Blood Imaging, 3D Arterial Spin Labelling (ASL), and 4D-TRANCE.
As a first responder, you need to decide if your patient might be experiencing a stroke and needs to be quickly taken to the right care. Our solutions connect you to stroke experts to support timely diagnostic and transfer decisions.
Most strokes occur early in the morning or late at night. To make things easier for care teams, day and night, the Azurion neuro suite starts up quickly, is easy to use and provides extra procedural guidance.
