NeuroLogica's Portable CT Scanner Used During Surgery on Conjoined Twins

November 9, 2007 - NeuroLogica Corp. announced that its CereTom portable CT scanner was successfully used during the separation surgery of Omani conjoined twins, Safa and Marwah, at King Abdulaziz Medical City, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

The CereTom was deployed to scan the twins during the surgery and was used immediately following their separation and closure, allowing surgeons to monitor the twins for life-threatening symptoms such as brain bleeds, before leaving the operating room (OR). Because of its portability, the CereTom is reportedly the only CT scanner that can be used in an operating room.

The CereTom is a portable eight-slice CT scanner that can be used in the radiology department, ICU, ER, OR, NICU, MICU, SICU, interventional suite, or any medical clinic. The CereTom is compact and lightweight; only 29 inches (74 cm) deep, five feet (153 cm) tall and four feet (134 cm) wide and weighs approximately 750 pounds (341kg). It is being used by hospitals and medical centers across the United States and Europe, including Massachusetts General Hospital, Cleveland Clinic, Mayo Clinic, University Hospital (Linkoping, Sweden) and Boston Children’s Hospital.
