Nuffield Health adds another premium x-ray room at Teesside hospital

Nuffield Health has invested in several Fujifilm Visionary Suites since the premium x-ray room solution was launched four years ago and the latest installation has recently been completed at Nuffield Health Tees Hospital.

The hospital was already a Fujifilm customer, having been one of the first in the UK to purchase an FDR nano mobile unit, and was one of the first Nuffield sites to install an Amulet Innovality mammography system.

“The new room has exceeded all our expectations,” said radiology manager Nicola Gregson-Maidwell. “From day one we all loved this system. The speed of image acquisition is very impressive and the image quality is just excellent. The interface is so easy to work with and very intuitive.

“Our clients are benefiting from a greatly reduced patient dose while the rise and fall floating table makes it so much easier for our patients to get on and off. The x-ray tube is easy to manoeuvre and very smooth, especially when using the remote control tube positioning option.”

Nuffield Health operational development lead for diagnostic imaging Sue Oliver commented on how pleased staff at Tees hospital were with the installation work: “We’ve had comments from across our workforce – from cleaners, radiographers, kitchen staff, radiologists – to say how good the Fujifilm team had been, working late, creating a clean and tidy working environment and always polite. The room looks great and we’re looking forward to our next Fujifilm installation in Leeds.”

The Visionary Suite is Fujifilm’s premium room solution and offers a range of applications to support diagnosis, including tomosynthesis, energy subtraction and long view image stitching.
