Deputy radiography services manager Sarah Sentence said: “We selected Philips equipment based on past experience. We have been very happy with the maintenance and service support and the software and platforms are familiar to our staff, reducing training time.
“We have found that our workflow is more efficient due to increased reliability and the excellent image quality leads to improved diagnosis.”
