5th November 2018
A recently announced partnership with Siemens Healthineers, Cobalt Health and Lamboo Mobile Medical will provide a mobile lung cancer screening service in the community. This partnership involves supporting the NHS in Manchester to deliver a mobile CT screening service.
Siemens Healthineers is installing one of its ultra-low dose SOMATOM go.Up CT scanners in a mobile trailer. During pilot schemes in Manchester, mobile screening units have helped to significantly increase early diagnoses. This supports study evidence and confirms the potential to save thousands of lives.
