Dental x-ray solutions make an impact in Belfast and Sussex

Mater Hospital, Belfast, has received a NewTom Go 2D panoramic OPG system supplied by HSL. The installation occupies a small footprint and clinical lead radiographer Brian Grant explained: “Space was at a premium but it was the outstanding quality of the images, the ergonomic design of the hardware, the great service and outstanding value for money from a local supplier that finalised our purchase decision.

“Our hospital provides acute services to North Belfast and surrounding areas and our range of services includes day procedures, inpatient and outpatient services. The NewTom unit will ensure our dental service capability is now second to none.”

The system uses cutting-edge image acquisition technology and advanced software that affords 2D/3D capability, with minimum x-ray dose due to SafeBeam technology. It comes from the pioneering 3D R&D team at Cefla in Italy, which is said to have produced the first dental CT cone beam unit.

HSL territory manager Michael Leonard added: “We were delighted to supply our NewTom Go to such a prestigious site and I am also delighted that my colleague Dawn Stewart at HSL GB has been successful with an installation at Uckfield Community Hospital (part of Sussex Community NHS Foundation Trust).”

Senior radiographer of community radiology service for the trust Clare Blount said: “HSL engineers installed the NewTom Go quickly and without disruption. The applications specialists spent the day with us, going through all aspects of the new kit and we also managed to book half a dozen patients, so we had real teeth to image.”
