qER is a triage and notification tool, making use of artificial intelligence to detect and prioritize head scans with indications of injuries that may require urgent attention. These include midline shifts, cranial fractures and bleeding. qER thus provides the unique opportunity and ability to triage almost any critical abnormality picked up by a routine scan. The high-quality AI imaging aims to reduce fatalities related to falsely discharged individuals due to lack of the necessary infrastructure required to identify potentially fatal complications.
