The repurposed containers, known as imaging cabins, contain either CT or x-ray systems, according to the vendor. Once created, the cabins can be transported and placed wherever they are needed, such as within a hospital, on hospital grounds, or within a community, Philips said.

Radiology departments can use the cabins to perform diagnostic imaging procedures with minimal or no patient contact, according to Philips. The cabins also have a lead shield and ultraviolet lamps designed to help prevent stray radiation and assist with sterilization.
The suites are also equipped with a computer for quick image analysis and can be linked to the hospital IT network for remote reading as well, according to the firm.
