The Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust, of which Birmingham Heartlands Hospital forms the largest part, held an official opening of the new Toshiba Aquilion ONE CT scanner suite. The suite forms the centrepiece of a completely redesigned CT scanning department.
The opening ceremony was attended by trust governors and other local dignitaries, who heard presentations from Dr Lowri Morus, clinical director of radiology, Dr Madava Djearaman, consultant cardiothoracic radiologist, and Dr Ed Hoey and Dr Shahid Hussain, consultant radiologists at Birmingham Heartlands Hospital. Matthew Stork, managing director of Toshiba Medical Systems UK, also spoke.
Toshiba md Matthew Stork commented: “With its ability to perform comprehensive examinations, including functional studies, the Aquilion ONE reduces the need for multiple tests and invasive procedures.”
