Now up and running at Arrowe Park Hospital, part of the Wirral University Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, is Toshiba’s Ultimax multi-purpose x-ray system.
Senior radiographer Kay Torres says: “We like it so much; it is very user-friendly and produces great images. The support is excellent.”
With a very small footprint, the Ultimax provides an RF solution for gastrointestinal studies, non-vascular interventions, and angiographic studies.
A key feature is effective dose management, achieved with a variety of fingertip controls. In addition, three filters reduce hard and soft x-ray exposure.
