Queen’s Medical Centre, Nottingham, part of Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust, has invested in a Philips Brilliance iCT scanner, setting the benchmark for trauma, neuro and advanced cardiac imaging.
Located in the A&E department, it joins an existing Philips CT scanner.
Consultant radiologist Dr Rakesh Ganatra reports: “We are very pleased with our new scanner, which is delivering reliable, high quality service, including outstanding diagnostic images.”
Brilliance iCT provides improved speed and clarity for dedicated vital organ imaging as well as whole body imaging procedures. It offers patient-specific acquisition protocols to balance image quality and dose utility, with shorter scan times.
