Susan Coyle Radiology Services Manager in UHG commented
“We are delighted to have taken delivery of our new Shimadzu Mobile EFX DaRt from HSL (Hospital Services Ltd) This system will make a massive difference within our hospital in term of image quality, reduced dose and higher patient throughput. The system will be predominantly based in the ICU unit where we will now have the ability to acquire Digital images within 2 seconds. This is a fantastic advantage compared to our older systems as the Consultants can view the images at the bedside if needed. This system is also wireless so the images can be sent straight to PAC once they have been taken. With the complex nature of patients in ICU the fact that we now have a Wireless DR detector means that there will be less patient movement which is always positive.”
