The Royal Devon and Exeter NHS Foundation Trust has added a Toshiba Aplio XG scanner in the obstetrics department at the Centre for Women’s Health where it joins an existing Aplio XG.


Superintendent sonographer Annette Ward commented, “The new XG is a welcome addition. It is popular for a range of obstetric and gynaecology examinations, including nuchal translucency measurements.”


She added: “We are particularly pleased with the quality of fetal heart imaging and are already using it for suspected cardiac anomalies and for telemedicine links.”


The Centre for Women’s Health provides maternity, neonatal and gynaecology services. The purpose-built hospital, which cost approximately £31.5 million, opened in 2007 and includes a state-of-the-art neonatal unit.
