Hammersmith Hospital upgrades with DR systems

Staff at Hammersmith Hospital welcome the addition of two Axiom Aristos MX systems from Siemens Healthcare.


Europe’s largest clinical imaging centre has installed two intuitive DR units to increase the x-ray capacity of its medical imaging department.  Hammersmith Hospital, part of Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust, has installed two Axiom Aristos MX digital radiography systems from Siemens Healthcare.


One of the DR systems has been installed for use in the A&E department for trauma cases, the other will add to the hospital’s general radiography capabilities.  The installations complete the process of upgrading the hospital’s imaging suites.


The Aristos MX immediately displays high resolution digital images to speed up the examination process and reduce the need of retakes.  The user-friendly system features pre-programmed system positioning, synchronised tube and table movements and motorised table height adjustment.  It also incorporates a large DQE flat panel detector.  syngo software supports Dicom 3 standards and enables networked communication into existing HIS/RIS, seamlessly managing information within the clinical environment.
