Llandough Hospital, part of the Cardiff and Vale University Health Board, invested in a Philips MultiDiagnost Eleva flat detector x-ray system to replace existing equipment. With flat detector technology, it was selected for its image quality and reduced dose.
Said superintendent radiographer Sue Bailey: “It ticked all the boxes of our specification on price, image quality, ease-of-use and, in particular, its spine imaging package, which was a key feature in our selection criteria. We are also very pleased with the intuitive user interface, which all our staff find simple and easy to use.”
The MultiDiagnost Eleva provides a wide range of applications, from RF to vascular and interventional procedures. Designed for faster diagnoses, its new technology adapts the system to the individual user’s way of working.
The Eleva concept offers technology that enables examination, operator and patient-related pre-sets to be programmed to each user’s preferences, reducing potential operator error.
