Ct acute care

  1. 1. CT Clinical Engines 2013 Edition www.siemens.com/ct-acute-care Get further. With the CT Acute Care Engine. Driving progress for reliable therapy decisions against the clockInternational version. Not for distribution in the U.S. Answers for life.
  2. 2. What is a CT Clinical Engine? • powerful combination of software applications and A scanner features – tailored to meet your clinical challenges • solution that helps you get the most from your CT scanner A With a CT Clinical Engine, you can continually enhance speed, workflow efficiency, and diagnostic information.2
  3. 3. 2013 Edition: OverviewHow far can you get with your CT?Rising patient expectations, increasing efficiency needs: The best way to meet thesechallenges is to get detailed diagnostic information faster.Whether it’s for triple rule-out of acute chest pain, for stroke assessment, poly-trauma,or acute abdominal pain – the CT Acute Care Engine provides clinical functionalitythat delivers decisive results for all of these challenging indications. Automatic CasePreparation has your case ready for reading as soon as it is opened. Above all, speed anddependability add confidence for critical decisions made against the clock.Driving progress for reliable therapy decisions against the clock. 3
