Queen’s Medical Centre, Nottingham, has recently acquired a Philips Digital Diagnost TH system, with the addition of a wireless detector, for its emergency department.
Richard Tucker, superintendent radiographer for emergency department diagnostic imaging, said: “Purchasing this equipment has enabled us to enter into the digital radiography future.”
In 2009-2010, the emergency department saw an increase in attendance of 10 per cent, which had a direct impact on the radiology service. With no possibility to expand the service, the decision was taken to install a new digital radiography room. This has enabled the radiology service to manage the increased workload from the emergency department.
