South West Acute Hospital in Enniskillen, Northern Ireland, opened in June this year and has four Philips MobileDiagnost wDR x-ray units.   The systems offer the same image quality as a full DR room, but in a mobile.

Radiology department manager Hazel Garrett said: “We chose the wDR as it seemed to be the most easily manoeuvrable, intuitive system on the market, providing a high quality image, with a usable quality assurance package.  The radiography staff find them a delight to use.”
