Causeway Hospital staff enjoy a hassle-free journey on transition to new CT system

Causeway Hospital in Coleraine, County Londonderry, part of Northern Health and Social Care Trust, has gone live with an Aquilion Prime SP CT scanner from Canon Medical UK. Situated near the emergency department, the system will provide trauma and out-of-hours related scanning and will support general and cardiac outpatient appointments.

The transition to the new CT has been smooth, with radiography staff adjusting well to the new features of the AI-assisted scanner, says Canon. Powered by Advanced intelligent Clear-IQ Engine (AiCE), it has helped to speed up processes to create time savings and improve the quality of diagnostic images for clinical interpretation.

“Every step of the new CT journey with Canon Medical has been hassle-free,” said trust lead CT radiographer Rachel Brown. “From the start of the relationship in selecting and ordering the CT system, to the system installation and user training, through to the after-sales service support we are receiving, it has been a smooth ride. Our imaging team has adjusted quickly to the integrated features of the scanner and is impressed with the improved image quality. We feel well supported and ready to provide the local community with a higher standard of imaging care into the future.”
