Derriford Hospital in Plymouth has installed a Philips MultiDiagnost Eleva FD system with remote controlled C-arm.
The Eleva FD has features to cover a broad area of applications, including gastrointestinal and vascular diagnosis and interventions, orthopaedics, urology and trauma. Examination and patient-related pre-sets can be programmed to users’ preferences.
Radiology services manager Steve Blake commented: “We selected Philips for its user-friendliness and versatility. We have been able to reorganise our work patterns and find, for instance, that we are now doing a lot of interventional MSK work on the new system that previously would have been carried out in a vascular room.
“This has been very useful in freeing up capacity on the vascular system.”
