Nurse practitioner Rachel Richardson with Toshiba sales specialist ultrasound Tim Palarm and gynaecology out-patient co-ordinator Pam Leaning.
Derriford Hospital in Plymouth has installed a Xario XG ultrasound scanner, where it is located in its emergency gynaecology unit.
The ultrasound service started in September 2009 provides a one-stop emergency gynaecological assessment service that enhances patient care and reduces the need for potentially unnecessary wards admissions.
Nurse practitioner Rachel Richardson and gynaecology out-patient co-ordinator Pam Leaning, described the Xario as being “compact and user-friendly as well as providing images that are consistently of good quality.”
