Cobalt expands its MRI mobile fleet

Behind are Philips UKI commercial lead imaging systems south Jane Robinson, Cobalt MRI manager Karen Hackling-Searle and Philips UKI managing director Neil Mesher.  In front are Cobalt ceo Peter Sharpe, Lamboo’s Alfred van dem Moogen and University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust MRI/neuroimaging superintendent radiographer Steven Peplow.

Cobalt Healthcare has taken delivery of another Philips 1.5T Ingenia MRI system, bringing the total number of mobile scanners in its all-Philips fleet to six, comprising four Ingenia 1.5T scanners, an Achieva 3.0T and an Ingenia 3.0T system.  Staying with the same manufacturer meant that less time was needed for training on the latest system.

Dutch medical mobile company Lamboo Mobile Medical supplied the trailer, which initially went into service at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham.

MRI manager Karen Hackling-Searle said: “We continue to be impressed with the image quality, patient comfort and versatility of the Ingenia systems.  We are able to deliver highly efficient services for the NHS trusts and other commissioners we work with, without compromising any of these areas.”
