Turkey’s first ‘CT in a Container’ Enables Safe, Critical Diagnosis of Viral Pneumonia Attributable to COVID-19

In a step forward in the fight against COVID-19, GE Healthcare, Cerrahpasa University Hospital and Rotary Club have delivered the first ‘CT in a Container’ in Turkey as a step forward in the fight against COVID-19. This innovative solution featuring advanced Computed Tomography (CT) equipment by GE Healthcare helps in diagnosing viral pneumonia attributable to COVID-19.

The fully insulated modular containers are sited in temporary tactical areas so that those who are suspected of Covid-19 are tested without they having to enter hospital facilities. This, in turn, ensures better infection control and an additional level of protection for frontline healthcare workers in hospitals.
