Canterbury Campus works with Philips on x-ray room to enhance practical skills training

Canterbury Christ Church University’s Verena Holmes Building is home to science, technology, health, engineering and medicine courses, helping to provide skilled graduates for the region.

The university has been working with Philips Healthcare to design an x-ray room for radiography students as part of the Canterbury Campus simulation suites used to enhance practical skills training in health and social care. The new equipment in the Verena Holmes Building provides students with access to a full range of clinical-grade radiography equipment and devices, to prepare students with the skills necessary for clinical practice in hospitals.

The Philips C90 high performance wireless DR room is designed to meet the diagnostic imaging needs of the most demanding institutions. The robust and familiar configuration of the DigitalDiagnost C90 complete with its live tube head camera is expected to create a first-class teaching environment as it displays a view from the collimators both on the tube and Eleva workspot screens. The system also comes with a traffic light dose coach to help with selecting the perfect patient dose and a 2k resolution reporting quality touch screen monitor for reporting development as standard. The teams are looking forward to using the system to launch new projects.
