Heartlands Hospital, Birmingham, has acquired a Philips AlluraClarity FD20 system. The installation was configured around the footprint of a previous Philips IR suite and where possible costs were contained by using existing ceiling mounts and hardware. Consultant interventional radiologist and clinical lead Dr Paul Crowe said: “The installation was designed from the outset to be moved into a new build IR department within two to three years as part of an ongoing hospital redevelopment programme. The Philips’ project team understood this and incorporated future requirements in the planning and implementation.”
Acting modality lead for interventional radiology Adam Stock, who directed the project at the hospital, added: “The modern facilities and state-of-the-art equipment will support the team in potentially seeing and treating more patients, and could reduce our waiting times. The system has the ability to perform a wide range of procedures more quickly, and patients will benefit as they will be receiving smaller doses of radiation.”
