With two Toshiba Aplio MX systems at Kettering General Hospital are sonographer Caryn Wakelin, superintendent sonographer Teresa Lardner, Toshiba Medical Systems ultrasound sales specialist Wendy Egan and ultrasound applications specialist Sally Davey, sonographers Andrea Moore and Claire York, radiology services manager Phil Hann and sonographer Lindsay Gulliver.
Kettering General Hospital has replaced ageing ultrasound equipment with five Toshiba Aplio MX systems, acquired through MES company Asteral.
Three machines will be used for general radiology, plus a dedicated breast scanner and vascular system. One of the radiology systems comes equipped with Toshiba’s contrast imaging package, to enable Kettering to carry out contrast studies of the liver.
Superintendent sonographer Teresa Lardner said: “The Toshiba equipment ticked all the boxes for us. We find it a particularly user-friendly system and like the ergonomic design. It also comes with a wide variety of probes for all applications.”
