Rachel Nolan explained: “We have extended the number of Voluson machines and now have six across our trust and local PCT. We chose it for our maternity site due to the excellent image quality.”
She added: “They have been greatly beneficial to the introduction of our NT service and they have enabled us to improve the service we offer. Sonographers find the machines operator friendly’ and the improved image quality has helped with challenging patients.”
