Ealing adds C-arm to allieviate busy departments

At Ealing Hospital are interventional radiology nurse Shahla Pottle, senior radiographer Glenda Legaspi, deputy imaging manager Kathy Goraya, clinical director radiology Dr Akkib Rafique, radiology/pathology manager Jayne Taylor and regional sales manager at Siemens Healthcare Andreas Hadjiphanis.

Ealing Hospital has installed a ceiling-mounted Artis zee from Siemens Healthcare. It is hoped the system will streamline procedures in the radiology department and alleviate workload from departments in high demand, such as CT.

“Key factors which led to the selection of the Artis zee were its low dose capabilities, reliability, ease of use and, of course, it’s added functionality suited to a wide range of procedures,” said deputy imaging manager Kathy Goraya.

“The image quality is fantastic and we can now focus on a specific organ and rotate the flexible C-arm around the patient to help reduce dose and speed up procedures.”
