Head CT scan Emergency Care Diagnostic Aid
Head CT scans are an essential piece of the emergency room diagnostic workflow in patients with a stroke or head injury. For successful treatment and prevention of long-term effects, a door-to-needle time of under one hour is recommended in patients with an ischemic stroke. Similarly, in patients with head injuries, a CT scan diagnosis helps decide if immediate surgical intervention is needed.
The emergency care head CT scan algorithm rapidly screens CT scans to detect, localize and quantify abnormalities, as well as assess their severity. This enables patient prioritization for the appropriate clinical intervention.
