As part of an extensive order covering several imaging modalities, Philips Healthcare recently supplied an Allura FD20 cardiovascular system to the new Royal Derby Hospital. It joins an existing FD20 already installed at the hospital.
The Philips Allura family of cardiovascular x-ray equipment comes with a host of software programmes. Developed in co-operation with partner hospitals, they offer a high level of automatic positioning movements.
“Low patient x-ray dose levels, user friendliness, proven reliability and excellent image quality are the hallmarks the Philips Allura family,” states Philips.
