Berwick Infirmary upgrades dental service

The radiology team at Berwick Infirmary offers a dental imaging service that, until recently, relied on an old CR reader located in the main x-ray department. Dental patients needed to wait until the cassette had been returned to the department and read before they were released, creating longer waiting times for patients and workflow delay for the team.

“We have been delighted with our new GO 2D since installation,” said site lead radiographer at Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust Ruth Kinghorn. “It has increased our throughput of patients and made examinations quicker and easier for staff and patients. It is so quick and easy to use, we get images instantly and the image quality is far superior to our old CR system. We have also seen a reduction in dose of at least 50 per cent.
