CT-like image guided procedures now possible

At Nottingham City Hospital are Philips Healthcare sales specialist interventional x-ray Ruth Turner, Philips district general manager central and west Rob Davies, Philips district operations manager Ian Mitcham, specialist radiographer Angela Cox, superintendent radiographer Kathy Beet, interventional radiology nurse Nicky Babiarz, Philips service delivery manager Simon Bannister, key account manager Samantha Bramley and customer service engineer Simon Weston.


Nottingham City Hospital has replaced an aged Philips vascular system with a Philips Allura Xper FD20 vascular interventional suite, loaded with an array of software packages, including Philips’ 3D-RA complete (3D-RA, 3D roadmapping, MR/CT roadmapping), XperCT, XperGuide and FlexVision LCD display screen. 


It also comes with an integrated Philips CX50 ultrasound scanner and table tilt and cradle.  The system will be used for vascular and interventional imaging.


Interventional radiology superintendent Kathy Beet said: “The new system will mean reduced waiting times for patients and will allow provision of a high quality, efficient service.  CT-like image guided procedures are now possible and we also hope to perform 3D rotational angiography in the future.”
