Good Hope Hospital, Birmingham, has acquired a Philips BV Pulsera C-arm system that will be used solely for ERCPs in a dedicated room, so that all endoscopy studies can be carried out in one place.

Consultant gastroenterologist Dr Monzur Ahmed said: “The BV Pulsera offers very good image quality and is on a par with the fixed room downstairs.  It’s 12″ system allows good coverage of the biliary tree and has great magnification capabilities.  The lower radiation doses offered are a huge improvement and great for our patients.”
