Doctors pioneering rapid CT scans

23rd November 2012

Doctors at King’s College Hospital in London are pioneering the use of rapid CT scans in an attempt to save the lives of seriously injured patients.

Some are being taken straight from the ambulance to a CT scanner, instead of A&E, where clinicians hope that the detailed images provided will help them select the correct course of treatment more quickly for the patient. The scanner also combines features of A&E department, which will allow doctors to resuscitate patients if necessary without moving them.
