Sonographers appreciate lightweight ultrasound machines

At Royal Shrewsbury Hospital are sonographer Sarah Martyn, senior sonographer Chris Oakley, superintendent sonographer Chris Neame and Philips Healthcare ultrasound applications specialist Felicity Curtis.

Patients attending the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital and the Princess Royal Hospital, Telford, are to benefit from Philips’ user-friendly Epiq ultrasound equipment.  Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust purchased three machines to be used across the two sites for a wide variety of scans including abdominal, gynaecological, paediatrics, small parts and vascular.

Royal Shrewsbury Hospital superintendent sonographer Chris Neame said: “The sonographers are very impressed with the excellent image quality of the Epiq 5.  We replaced some quite old machines, so we are finding that we are able to make a more accurate diagnosis in a shorter time.”
