Bringing the ER to the Patient: A CereTom equipped MSU saves precious time

What is a stroke?

Stroke occurs when blood flow to the brain is interrupted by a blockage or a rupture in an artery, depriving brain tissue of oxygen. It is the fourth leading cause of death in the United States and a leading cause of disability. Close to 800,000 Americans suffer a stroke each year.

What is a Mobile Stroke Unit?

A mobile stroke unit (MSU) is a standard-sized specialized ambulance that is equipped with a CereTom® CT (computed tomography) scanner. The mobile unit with diagnostic CT imaging capabilities allows the team aboard 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.
