Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham has purchased a Philips DigitalDiagnost with tomography.The hospital is the first acute hospital to be built in the city for 70 years and is an amalgamation of Queen Elizabeth and Selly Oak hospitals, representing a £545 million investment.

The DigitalDiagnost dual detector system is designed to accommodate a high number of patients and a wide variety of applications and projects, where high performance is essential.

The two detectors make it easy to switch from table to chest examinations and automated functions such as auto collimation and move-to-position help increase workflow, the company says.
