Radiographers take to vascular C-arm

At Countess of Chester Hospital are senior interventional radiographer Naomi Leadbetter, interventional nurse specialist Wendy McMahon, senior staff nurse Gaynor Smart, superintendent interventional radiographer Jenny Alger, radiology services manager Linda Williams and Toshiba Medical Systems commercial projects manager Jody Williams.

The Countess of Chester Hospital, Cheshire, has acquired a Toshiba Infinix VC-i vascular ceiling suspended C-arm imaging system.  Imaging manager Linda Williams said: “The image quality is excellent and the radiologists particularly like the improved resolution for vessel imaging.”


The system comes with Toshiba’s new low contrast imaging software designed to improve visualisation of soft tissue, so boosting diagnostic confidence by offering CT-like images of soft tissue including brain tissue, cerebral ventricles and hepatic visualisation without requiring additional examinations.
