Spire Healthcare has deployed a mobile Somatom Definition AS CT system from Siemens Healthcare, adding specialist CT imaging capabilities to six Spire hospitals located across the north west and north east of England and north Wales. The system offers high resolution imaging with reduced dose allowing these hospitals to offer cardiology CT scans at new locations.

“The system represents reliable CT imaging, helping improve clinical efficiency and patient care through reduced dose and outstanding image quality,” said Spire Healthcare head of mobile imaging Dianne Hopkins.  “Since its launch, feedback has been very positive; patients have commented on the unit’s enhanced clinical environment which makes for a very comfortable imaging experience.”
