The Royal College of Surgeons recently repeated its two-day intensive Endovascular Aneurysm Repair Planning Course.    


This is the third year that Toshiba has supported this course which was attended by radiologists, surgeons and radiographers from throughout the UK.


Course content consisted of presentations together with hands-on training on the Vitrea 2 workstation.  In addition, faculty members gave a series of lectures covering various aspects of EVAR planning and deployment. 


The Vitrea workstation is designed to focus on providing users with a standard workflow that is quick and intuitive; following the operation of each window, the user moves from acquisition to reporting in a matter of minutes.
