INTRODUCING: SmartMSU with OmniTom® Elite

SmartMSU with OmniTom Elite ushers in a new era of in ambulance CT imaging. Building on the legacy of the original MSU, it introduces high-quality 16-slice non-contrast CT, CT angiography, and CT perfusion scans of the head. The combination of rapid scan time, ease of use, and immediate image viewing makes SmartMSU with OmniTom Elite an indispensable tool for collecting real time data on suspected stroke patients before transporting them to the most appropriate hospital.

 

What is a Mobile Stroke Unit?

A mobile stroke unit (MSU) is a specialized ambulance that is equipped with a small CT scanner for imaging the head. The mobile unit with diagnostic CT imaging capabilities allows the team onboard to quickly assess whether a patient is having a stroke caused by a blood clot or hemorrhage. If it is determined to be caused by a blood clot, the clot-buster tPA (tissue plasminogen activator) can be administered immediately
