During the first lockdown in 2020, the Princess Alexandra Hospital NHS Trust (PAHT) in Harlow invested in a new mobile digital x-ray platform and one specific model was top choice.
“One of the main reasons for choosing the FDR nano mobile x-ray unit for the radiology department was that it is lightweight and has easy manoeuvrability for fast, efficient bedside imaging,” explained A&E superintendent radiographer Michelle Clooney. “The mobile was able to provide imaging on wards that our other portable units were unable to access due to weight restrictions on these wards. During the pandemic these were converted to COVID-19 wards and the FDR nano unit enabled quick and efficient bedside imaging for these patients.”
