Crystal clear images aid interventional workload

At Queen’s Hospital, Romford, with an Artis zee system are radiology general manager Stephen Griffiths, senior radiographer interventional Olivia Sanders, consultant radiologist Dr Manoj Srivastava, radiology resource manager Alita Deterville, sister Sue Brush and Siemens Healthcare technical manager managed services Clive West.

Queen’s Hospital, part of Barking, Havering and Redbridge University Hospitals NHS Trust, has installed an Artis zee biplane system as part of a long-term MES partnership between the trust and Siemens Healthcare.

Located in the radiology department, the equipment replaces an existing interventional imaging system and is said to be significantly improving departmental throughput.  It is handling a general interventional workload mainly consisting of endovascular aortic repair and non-vascular intervention, but is also being used as a back-up system for neurological intervention imaging.

“Staff have found the Artis zee biplane easy to use and we have been very pleased with the images delivered,” said radiology resource manager Alita Deterville.  “The installation process ran smoothly and the multiple display in the examination room provides us with crystal clear images alongside rapid acquisition times.”
