The Royal Oldham Hospital, part of the Northern Care Alliance NHS Group, is celebrating the first anniversary of its Ultimax-i three-in-one angiography, fluoroscopy and radiology system from Canon Medical Systems UK. The multi-directional, interactive digital C-arm is designed for clinical flexibility and requires minimal space.
Reflecting on its first year of service, interventional radiology and fluoroscopy manager Helena Hill said: “The Ultimax-i has given us a flexible resource to manage MSK and upper gastrointestinal work. Our endoscopy staff and speech therapists feel it has changed the way they work, with brilliant image quality and the multi-directional digital C-arm.
“The quality of service and applications support we receive from Canon Medical is amazingly reliable; everyone is so friendly and helpful. If we need an engineer’s support, one comes out straightaway, which gives total peace of mind that it was the right choice of provider and remains committed to our equipment long after the procurement process has ended. We look forward to many more years of working in imaging partnership.”
