Low x-ray chair helps Dumfries and Galloway carry out video swallow examinations

Dumfries and Galloway Royal Infirmary has received an x-ray chair to be used during video swallow examinations. The the Real 9000 model chair from Wolverson X-ray can also be used for other procedures requiring a seated position, such as scoliosis examinations.

Lead radiographer Kerri Burnie said: “Our video swallows are performed in our interventional room and, due to the set up of the equipment, a variable height chair with a radio-opaque back is a crucial piece of equipment for us. Our previous chair was unreliable and we were struggling to find anything suitable to replace it. Wolverson brought a chair for us to try and then custom-made a chair to our height requirements. We are very pleased with our chair and the service provided by Gurpal and the team.”
