The company is highlighting a study from the Cleveland Clinic that found portable CT can significantly reduce cost and improve care of ICU patients. In the study published in the March/April issue of the Journal of the American Healthcare Radiology Administrators, NeuroLogica’s CereTom Portable Head/Neck scanner was used. According to the data, fewer personnel were required to conduct a scan which translated into an annual FTE cost savings of $162,512. In addition, with the fixed conventional scanner dedicated to perform a greater number of less time-intensive outpatient studies, an annual increase in revenue of $461,145 on the fixed full body scanner was realized.
Portable CT imaging offers a total scan time of 18 minutes per patient, as compared to the average of 50 minutes when transporting to the fixed full body scanner.
