Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust has installed a total of 10 Ysio wi-D digital radiography systems from Siemens Healthcare. 


Queen Alexandra Hospital will support in- and outpatient, adult, paediatric and emergency imaging needs with eight DR systems.  Nearby St Mary’s Hospital has installed one Ysio for general imaging and Hampshire Community Health Care’s Gosport War Memorial Hospital has also installed a system for community-based imaging.


Already, the speed of digital image delivery has reduced patient examination times from 12 to seven minutes, helping the busy Queen Alexandra Hospital to see more patients during the day.
