Royal Cornwall Hospital overcomes lack of space

Philips UKI district general manager Lee Moger, imaging, radiotherapy and interim AHP deputy divisional manager CSSC (ops) Emma Spouse, consultant radiologist Dr Phil Cook, MRI team leader James Shaw, radiography service lead Jackie Knox and Philips UKI account manager Claire Whetton.

Royal Cornwall Hospitals NHS Trust’s decision to purchase a third Philips MRI scanner created a question of where to install the new equipment.  There was no space available within the existing infrastructure at the Royal Cornwall site.  However the issue was resolved by a unique solution from Philips UKI, whereby the trust purchased a relocatable scanner, one equipment unit and a second ancillary unit connected together, to be operated as a fixed MRI system fully compliant to building regulations.  Philips UKI purchased the relocatable unit from Lamboo Mobile Medical and managed the installation from delivery to operational status.

Imaging, radiotherapy and interim AHP deputy divisional manager CSSC (ops) Emma Spouse said: “Everything about the Ingenia 1.5T is fantastic.  Radiographers love using it; the patients really appreciate the wider bore and the radiologists are really happy with the image quality.”
