Royal Bolton Hospital, part of Bolton NHS Foundation Trust, has ordered its first Agfa solutions: three fully automated DR 600 direct radiography rooms. Turnkey works at the hospital began in October and delivery of the DR solutions took place in December.
Lead radiographer Dr Amanda Martin commented: “The Royal Bolton x-ray team takes great pride in its imaging techniques and clinical image quality. We have a ‘first time right’ approach to delivering excellent imaging quality and training, which matches that of Agfa.
“We were attracted to the DR 600 by the focus on dose reduction, through immediate feedback on dose measured against local dose reference levels, and the positive impact that the software design had on patient flow. In addition, we are very pleased to have found a general x-ray room that has the ability to work with the radiographer in achieving an optimal image first time, through customisation of the software.”
