Frimley Park Hospital NHS Foundation Trust has installed a Philips BrightView XCT. Radiology services manager Philip Ramsey said: “We have been impressed with the CT/SPECT images we are able to produce in a shorter time, improving patient outcome. Our patients have had a positive response to the wider aperture, finding it less claustrophobic.”
Lead radiographer nuclear medicine Ann Fullbrook said “We like the kit and software and we have received excellent service from the Philips team and have confidence in them. The training has been great and we feel well supported. Philips staff have been willing to fit in around us; they are always there at the end of the phone and email, and came back to give our consultants training as well.”
