Ayrshire maternity unit, located at Crosshouse Hospital Kilmarnock, has purchased a Toshiba Aplio XG ultrasound system. The hospital is part of the Ayrshire and Arran Health Trust, which covers a large area including several far-flung rural locations.
Aplio XG ultrasound systems are currently in use in East Ayrshire Community Hospital, Ayrshire Central Hospital, The Ayr Hospital and Crosshouse Hospital, with a total of 19 Toshiba ultrasound scanners in use throughout the trust.
Technical manager Bill Brash from Crosshouse Hospital area medical physics department said: “We have been moving towards Toshiba as our main supplier for ultrasound as we find the systems very reliable and we also receive excellent back-up from the company.”
