Birmingham City Hospital purchased three Esaote systems in 2022, each equipped with the latest features. Clinical engineering manager Gary Howse has been keen to acquire the best ultrasound technology. Esaote’s MyLab X75 is a mid-range flagship system purchased for the labour ward, which will allow the unit to achieve good diagnostic image quality using the newest technology. Patients are expected to benefit from early assessment, resulting in improved patient management. A cardiac probe has been included to allow clinicians to assess patients’ hearts rather than referring them to cardiac radiology.
Howse said: “As EBME [electronic and biomedical engineering] managers we are always looking to see how we can empower our clinicians to better treat patients; this includes getting them the best equipment, servicing their equipment and advising where possible. The Esaote ultrasound products will allow us to better equip all clinicians to deliver the crucial treatment required.
