With an Aplio MX are consultant radiologist Dr William Howard, sonographers Catherine Shirtcliffe and Diana Alexander, Toshiba applications specialist Filia Aristidou, clinical director of radiology Dr Dare Demuren, sales specialist Alison Juniper, consultant radiologist Dr Rebecca Spendiff, sonographer Leigh Baldock, ultrasound manager Grace Pettican and sonographer Lisa Jacobs.
Clacton and Colchester Hospitals, part of Colchester Hospitals University NHS Foundation Trust, has purchased five Toshiba Aplio MX ultrasound scanners as replacements for existing systems, that were over five years old.
The new equipment comprises two maternity and three general purpose scanners.
One maternity and one general purpose scanner will be used by Clacton Hospital, with the remaining three at Colchester General Hospital.
The maternity scanner at Colchester, which comes with 3D/4D imaging, will not be used on a routine basis, but during specialist consultant-led sessions when an abnormality is suspected.
The MX was launched last November to provide a compact system with premium clinical performances and high-end features at an affordable price.
