Eddie Conran Radiology Services Manager commented
“The replacement of an old plug in mobile unit with the Shimadzu Mobile Art Evolution from HSL (Hospital Services Ltd) was a most welcome addition to mobile ward radiography in Mayo University Hospital. It is a compact, mobile & a very versatile unit making it user friendly in tight spaces on wards. The ability to move the whole unit remotely from the tube head is particularly useful when a radiographer finds themselves on the far side of a bed wanting to adjust position”
