The Pilgrim Hospital in Boston, Lincolnshire, has installed a Philips Veradius mobile C-arm with flat panel detector for general surgery and vascular procedures.
The Veradius is designed to give surgeons and interventional radiologists more flexibility and to improve patient care by streamlining workflow as well as improving image quality.
The smaller footprint Veradius frees up valuable space during complex procedures. An additional monitor on the C-arm stand enables the operator to have an unobstructed view of the live image.
With the Veradius, Philips builds on its expertise in flat detector technology gained from its fixed cardiovascular systems and has engineered this technology specifically for its mobile C-arms. It provides excellent image quality at a low dose.
