Specialist cardiac sonographer Sophie Bale with consultant paediatric cardiologist Dr Bev Tsai-Goodman.
The Fetal Cardiology Department at St Michael’s Hospital Bristol has purchased a Toshiba Aplio XG ultrasound scanner. The University Hospitals Bristol NHS Trust provides tertiary level cardiac screening and diagnostic services to the obstetric ultrasound departments within the south west region.
The service is well-established and provides a high level of care to a significant number of women and their families each year.
Consultant paediatric cardiologist Dr Bev Tsai-Goodman commented: “The Aplio XG allows us to produce precision images with clarity and high resolution. The fetal cardiac programme facilitates optimisation of the images acquired with simplicity and precision.”
