Royal Derby Hospital has found the Hologic Fluoroscan mini C-arm to be a perfect working partner in the hand-and-foot operating and outpatients’ environments.
The system offers excellent digital imaging and can be operated by the surgeon. The Royal Derby already has three Fluoroscan systems, one in the outpatients clinic and two in the Pulvertaft Hand Centre. With the move to the new hospital, a fourth machine, again supplied by Vertec Scientific, is for main theatres covering trauma and elective foot and ankle surgery and some upper limb surgery.
Mr Milner said: “As we are trained to operate the system ourselves, we are able to get on with our day without involving other hospital staff.”
