FOR CRITICAL CARE
For medical interventions … image-quality matters and a full-body CT won’t fit in your ICU or OR. For those moments when having a clear picture would make a difference—xCAT is designed to meet the specific needs of surgical specialists who require high-definition images when time is of the essence.
“The portable scanner does have the advantage of faster acquisition time, because there is not that transport involved. So when there is an acute neurological change, and we want to know why, and when we suspect that it’s due to the most common things that we see—new intracranial hemorrhage, new and worsening midline shift due to cerebral edema, new hydrocephalus—things that are relatively, readily visible on a CT scan, that’s when we would use a portable CT scanner such as xCAT IQ.”
Why bring the patient to the scanner …
… when you could bring the scanner to the patient?
Maneuver within crowded critical care units and avoid moving patients when images are needed in critical care
- Compact – stores in OR for immediate access
- 4-wheel steering – easy to move into position
- Self-shielded – safe operation from the console
