Theatres team leader Teresa Cao with team members Preethy Joseph, Binitha Mani, Rena Ramachandran, Kim Grundy, Gemma Armstrong, Nigel Garbutt, Steve Houghton, Mike Kenealy, Clare Nightingale, Ubah Sharif and Vertec applications specialist Joy Thorpe.
Vertec applications specialist Joy Thorpe has visited the children’s theatre department of Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital (RMCH) to deliver operator training for a Hologic Fluoroscan Insight mini C-arm system.
RMCH is supported by an active charity in projects that provide state-of-the-art and specialised equipment to help improve the diagnosis and treatment of children, as well as research that may provide a better understanding of children’s illnesses and the treatments of the future. The charity funded the acquisition of the Fluoroscan and general manager Bernadette Edwards said: “It will become an important asset in the theatres and we hope once this is in use it will reduce the time children are waiting for minor trauma procedures. We are grateful to the charity for its support without which we would not have acquired the machine.”
