Royal Gwent appreciates fast acquisition times

With Philips Healthcare sales specialist Gary Bailey are, in the front row, superintendent clinical practitioner Alison Lee, support worker Kirsty Vagi (seated), senior physicist Helen Blundell (standing) and Philips Healthcare’s David Talbot (seated).  In the back row are senior radiographer Rebecca Jones, Philips Healthcare nuclear medicine sales specialist, Chris Wilson, senior radiographers Sarah Manger, Paul Widger and Jason Elliott and consultant radiologist Dr Sukhdev Singh.


Royal Gwent Hospital, part of Aneurin Bevan Health Board, has invested in Philips SPECT/CT with BrightView XCT.  


Superintendent clinical practitioner Alison Lee said: “We like the image quality we are obtaining for nuclear medicine and CT images, and also the fast CT acquisition time.   The large bore and the table weight limit allow us to acquire images on heavier patients and there is good manoeuvrability between the dual heads.   


“We also like the fast and easy set-up of acquisitions, which can be undertaken either with the remote station at the patient’s side or from the control room. The system is very flexible, easy to use and most importantly, patient friendly.”
