• Clark Regional Medical Center has adopted the Airo ® TruCT ® , a point-of-care computed tomography (CT) imaging system. The highly mobile scanner equips clinicians with innovative technology when and where they need it, helping them better serve their patients.

The Airo TruCT scanner features a 32-slice detector and fan beam diagnostic quality imaging, both of which are designed to provide physicians with a better understanding of a patient’s disease state. The

system’s innovative technology allows staff to adjust radiation dose based on the patient’s weight and scan region. Additionally, it allows surgeons to scan a full meter of the body in only 43 seconds.

“The AiroTru CT is another example of Clark Regional investing in advanced technology to meet the needs of Clark County and the surrounding communities,” said Dr. James Rice of Kentucky Orthopaedics and Spine. “This technology will create efficiencies for staff, reduce the time of complex procedures and allow us to be extremely accurate during surgical procedures.”

The Airo TruCT scanner is compact enough to fit into a standard hospital transport elevator. Its ability to self-propel during transportation makes it highly mobile, unlike traditional stationary CT imaging systems. Once it reaches the desired location, it can be powered by a standard wall outlet.
