Ipswich hospital welcomes improved image quality

Radiation protection and clinical lead imaging services manager Ann Mann, senior radiographers Beth Ward and Claire Doyle, graduate radiographer Anna Zalewksa, Toshiba Medical Systems southern branch manager CT/x-ray/MRI Simon Weeden and account executive CT/x-ray/MRI Colin Pellow.

Nuffield Health Ipswich Hospital has installed an Aquilion Prime 160-slice cardiac CT system with dental imaging software.  The InHealth group runs the hospital’s managed CT service.

The equipment from Toshiba Medical Systems will enable the hospital to offer the latest cutting-edge technology and comes with dental imaging software as well as a cardiac package including calcium scoring and helical cardiac acquisition.  The latest Vitrea workstation is also available for clinicians to undertake advanced 2D and 3D post-processing.

Imaging services manager, radiation protection and clinical lead Ann Mann said: “The Aquilion Prime replaced a Toshiba four-slice scanner which was eleven years old.  We looked at scanners and were satisfied that staying with the same manufacturer was the right choice for us.  The installation was incredibly quick and the engineers kept the disruption to an absolute minimum.”
