Leeds Academic Unit of Diagnostic Imaging Ultrasound lecturers Jane Arezina, Rosie Conlon, Stephen Wolstenhulme and David Oxborough.
The School of Healthcare at the University of Leeds is the first university in the UK to purchase a Toshiba Viamo portable ultrasound system. The acquisition was assisted by collaboration with the Yorkshire and Humber Strategic Health Authority.
Stephen Wolstenhulme, ultrasound lecturer at the School of Healthcare explained: “The Viamo will support multi-professional learning and teaching of undergraduates and postgraduates at the School of Healthcare and the School of Medicine. It will also be used by the unit’s academic staff to undertake research in line with the aims of this research-led University.”
The Viamo is said to allow portability without compromise in image quality and includes easy-to-use touch screen technology.
