Lincoln’s latest CT additions bring high throughput

With the Aquilion LB are consultant medical physicist Dr Andrea Wynn Jones, senior radiotherapy radiographer Ellen Kirby, superintendent radiotherapy radiographer Lee Beresford, senior radiotherapy radiographer Paul Stapleton, Toshiba Medical Systems account executive Nichola Baron and applications specialist Heather Dring.

Lincoln County Hospital, part of The United Lincolnshire Hospital NHS Trust, has acquired two Toshiba CT systems to join an existing Toshiba scanner at the hospital.

Radiotherapy imaging specialist and superintendent radiographer Lee Beresford said: “We chose the Toshiba LB scanner for the oncology centre as the large bore and scanning field-of-view would enable us to accurately localise all of our radiotherapy patients, while ensuring that we would not have to compromise on immobilisation to fit the patient through the bore.”

The diagnostic imaging department selected an Aquilion CXL 64.
