Children’s Health Ireland has taken delivery of a Shimadzu Radspeed Pro Style edition x-ray room and Canon OneShot stitching frame supplied by Hospital Services Limited. The installation will enable the x-ray department to have a dedicated room for chest imaging and long-length examination on the Canon OneShot DR frame. The frame is said to offer several advantages over standard image stitching including a removable grid for paediatrics, one-shot imaging, better patient safety and lower necessity for repeats.
