Royal Gwent adds cardiac service with Aquilion One

At Royal Gwent Hospital are, standing from left, Toshiba account executive Megan Newberry, senior radiographer Jeff Nyamunda, deputy CT superintendent radiographer Shaun Walsh, Toshiba CT applications specialist Mark Condron, consultant radiologist Dr S Singh, porter David Lowe and, to the right, CT superintendent radiographer Nicola Jones.  Seated on the couch are support worker Erika Lloyd, senior radiographer Charity Mukwenya, support worker Anna Evans and senior radiographer Claire Triscott.


Royal Gwent Hospital, Newport, has replaced an ageing Toshiba Aquilion S16 CT scanner with a state-of-the-art Aquilion One system.  In addition to serving as a general purpose scanner, it has enabled Royal Gwent to start a cardiac CT service.  The purchase decision was influenced by the fact that the radiology department already had two Aquilion CT scanners that it was happy with. 


Deputy superintendent radiographer Shaun Walsh said: “Transition to the Aquilion One was very easy, with full support from Toshiba.  The combination of speed, great image quality and even lower doses allows us to provide an invaluable CT service in our extremely busy department.”
