Agfa HealthCare has upgraded its computed radiography equipment at Bristol Royal Hospital for Children (BRHC) with a CR solution comprising a DX-G and a DX-S digitiser. Both systems offer the potential for dose reduction.
BRHC is a dedicated paediatric hospital, undertaking complex procedures and offering specialist services.
Superintendent paediatric radiographer Donna Dimond said: “The DX-S provides immediate diagnostic visualisation of the imaging performed within the examination room, crucial in the management of trauma cases and suspected non-accidental injury patients.”
Over the next few years, the radiology team is looking forward to the centralisation of paediatric services, which will culminate in a rebuild of key radiological areas and the arrival of new equipment and specialities.
