Staff at the hospital organised a well-attended open afternoon to promote the work of the department and to launch it under the new name of interventional radiology theatres’.
Superintendent radiographer Chris Cobb said: “The system will help us perform and develop a wide variety of complex interventional procedures. We are now able to visualise and treat small lesions more effectively. The interventional tools provide improved image quality and reduced dose.”
