Newly built Spire Shawfair Park Hospital, part of Spire Healthcare, is using radiography and fluoroscopy solutions from Siemens Healthcare following the installation of an Axiom Luminos dRF and Ysio wi-D direct digital radiography system.
Luminos provides imaging for diagnostic and therapeutic arthrography, hysterosalpingography, barium studies and lap-band adjustments. The Ysio provides general x-ray imaging.
“For certain imaging, before the Ysio equipment was installed in both our Edinburgh hospitals, patients were asked to stand on quite a high step this is no longer required,” said Spire Edinburgh Hospitals radiology manager Kim Hogg. “The wireless flexibility of the Ysio wi-D has significantly improved patient comfort and ease-of-use for the radiographer.”
