Frimley Park Hospital NHS Foundation Trust has replaced one of its x-ray systems with a Philips Allura Xper FD20 vascular interventional system, including 3D-RA and XperCT software packages.
The system, which will be used for all vascular and interventional work with an emphasis on endovascular applications, will allow the hospital to expand its service, including the performance of more complex and minimally invasive procedures.
Radiology services manager Philip Ramsey said: “The Philips equipment in the new interventional suite has revolutionised our service in terms of image quality and speed and is also user friendly. The equipment and facility are currently the showcase of the hospital.”
