State-of-the-Art CT Scanner to Enhance TUH Emergency Department Care
Tallaght University Hospital Foundation (TUHF) has introduced the Canon Aquilion ONE PRISM Edition CT Scanner with Artificial Intelligence (AI) Assisted Decision Making to its Emergency Department (ED). This advanced scanner, backed by a €2 million investment from TUHF, will significantly enhance patient care and outcomes, especially for critical cases like strokes. The Canon Aquilion Prime SP 160 CT Scanner boasts top-tier imaging technology while minimizing radiation exposure for patients. Coupled with Brainomix AI software and a simulation laboratory, this scanner empowers ED patients with superior emergency medical care. The Brainomix AI software swiftly identifies stroke-related brain damage, aiding clinicians in making rapid and reliable decisions. Gratitude was expressed towards donors, including partner Bartra Healthcare, for making this technology possible. This acquisition reflects TUHF's commitment to innovative patient care. The new CT scanner also helps alleviate the strain on the Radiology Department, reducing wait times for both general and ED patients. The partnership between TUHF and Bartra Healthcare exemplifies their dedication to improved healthcare services and patient well-being.
