Back-up battery saves time for Birmingham Children’s Hospital

Advanced sonographer Sonia Mahay, GE Healthcare ultrasound sales specialist Jody Welton, principal sonographer Jean Cahalane with advanced sonographers Andrew Williams and Romesh Attwal.

Birmingham Children’s Hospital has received two GE Healthcare Logiq S8 ultrasound systems that will fulfil two major roles at the hospital – portable and interventional ultrasound interventions.

Principal sonographer Jean Cahalane said: “The Logiq S8 is a great mid-range ultrasound machine with high image quality and, because both machines have wireless connectivity throughout the hospital, patient work lists and ultrasound images can be transmitted to and from theatre and the patient’s bedside in a seamless manner.  This has streamlined workflow, alleviating the need to find a PACS port to send images and receive the work list.  This in turn has improved the turnaround time of portable ultrasound scans and reports.”
