With a newly-installed S2000 are regional sales manager for ultrasound Bernadette Leonard, acting vascular lab manager Charis Richards and trainee clinical vascular scientists Sarah Wheeldon, Joanna Smith and Toni Tinken.
The vascular lab at Manchester Royal Infirmary, part of Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, has installed an Acuson S2000 2.0 ultrasound system from Siemens Healthcare.
It replaces a Sonoline Antares ultrasound system and is being used for a variety of procedures, including carotid artery ultrasound, venous ultrasound for deep vein thrombosis and varicose veins, aortic aneurysms and peripheral arterial ultrasound. It is also used in renal pre- and post-operative procedures, such as upper limb vein mapping and arterio-venous fistulae.
