Hurstwood Park Regional Centre for Neurosciences, part of the Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals NHS Trust, has replaced its angiography equipment with a Philips Allura Xper FD20 that will enable the centre to carry out non-surgical interventional treatment, including treatment of cerebral aneurysms.
The Allura Xper FD20 is a single plane vascular interventional imaging system for challenging diagnostic examinations and neurovascular interventions. It features one large flat detector with Philips’ 2k imaging and advanced interventional tools to give a clear view of vessel morphology.
The system provides full-body coverage for vascular applications and real-time 3D reconstructions.
