NHS Scotland updates CT, MRI and SPECT/CT across the country

Hospitals across Scotland will soon benefit from cutting-edge imaging equipment to improve women’s health, precision medicine and general imaging services. The equipment from Siemens Healthineers forms part of a multimodality tender.

Two Mammomat Revelations are the first systems scheduled to be installed at Inverclyde Royal Hospital and the Royal Alexandra Hospital in Paisley. The Mammomat Revelation is designed to improve the patient experience and has a number of features including SoftComp, OpComp, MoodLight and PRIME dose-reducing technology to allow easier positioning of patients and greater comfort, in addition to advanced screening techniques and personalised exposure.

The Golden Jubilee Nat-ional Hospital in Clydebank and Lorn and Islands Hospital in Oban will receive the first Somatom go.Top systems in Scotland. These scanners will add CT capacity to help meet the high demand for scans. In addition to this, Golden Jubilee National Hospital has upgraded its Magnetom Avanto with the latest generation of integrated coil and workflow technology. Powered by the new syngo MR E11 software platform the hospital is expanding its current MRI services with Magnetom Avantofit.

Gartnavel General Hospital, Glasgow Royal Infirmary and University Hospital Ayr will all be able to offer a wider range of therapies having received the Symbia Intevo Bold. With dual use capabilities, the platform offers high performance CT and SPECT technologies to enable optimal imaging of a diverse patient population.

In addition, Magnetom Sola MRI systems will expand precision medicine at the Institute of Neurological Sciences and Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in Glasgow, Victoria Hospital in Kirkcaldy and Borders General Hospital in Melrose.

Siemens Healthineers says the Magnetom Sola is the first 1.5T MRI system with BioMatrix Technology. It is able to overcome unwarranted variations in MRI examinations and avoid unnecessary rescans
