Spec for temporary CT scanner installation crucial

Devon Medical European sales manager Brin Laurie and GE Healthcare radiology account manager Ian Sandilands with St John’s Hospital at Howden chief radiographer/radiology service manager Clinton Heseltine.

A temporary CT scanner was installed by medical equipment specialist Devon Medical earlier this year at St John’s Hospital at Howden, Livingston, to be used while a new CT scanner was installed.  Devon Medical reports that the specifications for the room were crucial, with a clear floor area five metres square with x-ray screening supplied by the hospital.  Normal x-ray screens are usually sufficient, although Devon Medical can supply them at an additional cost after a site survey.

Chief radiographer and radiology services manager Clinton Heseltine said: “Devon Medical delivered and installed the temporary 4-slice GE LightSpeed CT scanner in advance of the removal of the old CT scanner.  This enabled St John’s to continue to provide an on-site CT service for 8 weeks during the install of the GE Optima CT660.
