King’s Mill Hospital has installed four Philips radiography systems at its new facility, King’s Treatment Centre. Part of a £320m re-development by the Sherwood Forest Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust it accommodates patient day case visits for endoscopy and diagnostic imaging.
Key features include a range of fast-track facilities for cardiology, audiology, vascular surgery and pre-operative assessments.
Installed at the centre are two Philips Digital Diagnost VM systems, a digital Diagnost TH with Digital Diagnost VS and a Bucky Diagnost TH with VS.
The Digital Diagnost range combines a digital detector with advanced image processing capabilities and flexible geometry.
