April 9, 2020 — Radiology imaging  and radiotherapy systems vendor United Imaging is responding to customer requests for readily transportable computed tomography (CT) scanners in the U.S. to help in the fight against COVID-19. The company’s high-speed CT scanners provide high-quality imaging and faster exams on patients who may already be struggling to breathe because their lungs are compromised from the effects of COVID-19.

United Imaging began working on new solutions for the U.S. after getting requests from its customers and seeing the needs in China and Europe. The company is collaborating with different vendors, including Sea Box and AMST to build both semi-truck trailer CT scanning rooms and those built into customized shipping containers. Other vendors are helping with infection control, ventilation, and easier cleaning/disinfection to help protect healthcare workers and patients.

The first transportable CT scanner was installed at the request of Maimonides Medical Center, the largest hospital in Brooklyn, New York, on the front lines of the current crisis. As the hospital scales its operations to meet the needs of an expected influx of coronavirus patients, doubling its capacity to 1,400 beds, United Imaging’s scanner will help expand its capacity for imaging studies to support diagnosis and treatment.
