The New Victoria ACH Hospital has installed a Philips Achieva 1.5T A series MRI system to complement the existing MRI service within the south sector of Greater Glasgow and Clyde NHS Trust.
The new facility has taken on much of the breast imaging with a view, eventually, to performing biopsies under MR guidance.
The department has also started dynamic female pelvic imaging with excellent results.
MRI lead radiographer Lesley Frame said: “We selected Philips because we were impressed with the image quality the system had to offer.”
The £100m hospital one of the largest in Scotland is expected to treat around 400,000 patients a year. It is equipped with the very latest in imaging technology and advanced day surgery theatres.
Modern consulting rooms, airy waiting areas and a secure underground car park help to create an attractive and welcoming environment.
The Achieva scanner was purchased for the New Victoria Hospital, with another Achieva A series system for a second new hospital in the Greater Glasgow and Clyde Health Board area. Both systems are equipped with ExamCards, which can be transferred between sites via email and memory stick for easy sharing of protocols.
