Pictured at the Aldershot Centre for Health with an Hologic Discovery Ci DXA system supplied by Vertec Scientific are radiographer Indira Karia, senior radiographer Helen Holmes, radiology services manager Philip Ramsey and Vertec technical manager Simon Churchill.
To perform DXA examinations, the centre chose the Discover Ci, which features OnePass Technology, Instant Vertebral Assessment and FRAX to examine the forearm, dual hip, proximal femur and lumbar spine. The centre has now passed the 1,000th patient milestone.
Opened in 2008, it offers a range of health services, including three GP practices, a dental clinic and a pharmacy. It has an outpatient department for Frimley Park Hospital that also manages the radiology facilities including x-ray, ultrasound, CT and DXA scanning.
