Definium 8000 for Burton

Pictured following the handover of a GE Healthcare Definium 8000 digital x-ray system with VolumeRAD to Queen’s Hospital, Burton on Trent, are (from left): hospital paediatric specialist and DR superuser Sheila Jones, superintendent radiographer Karen Wainman, consultant radiologist Dr Keshar Kulkarni, clinical practice lead Nigel Hughes, GE Healthcare’s business development manager Julie Barry and x-ray product specialist Mark Foxall.


The multi-purpose Definium 8000 has already made a difference to the hospital with improved patient throughput and enhanced images.


Of clinical importance is also the use of VolumeRAD, a sophisticated tomosynthesis capability that features a stationary detector, unique to GE, that allows the visualisation of hard to see injuries and lesions without using relatively high dose CT.
