Agfa HealthCare imaging business manager John Flavell, professional lead for clinical radiology, medical physics and medical photography/illustration Mark Buckley, clinical lead for plain film and fluoroscopy Rachel Beckett, deputy professional lead for clinical radiology, medical physics and medical photography/illustration Lisa Hickling, radiology clinical systems deputy manager Annette Talbot and Agfa key account manager David Wright.

Rotherham Hospital, in South Yorkshire has implemented an Agfa HealthCare DX-D 100 direct radiography solution with FreeView technology in its emergency department.  The hospital has also implemented a DR 600 fully automated DR x-ray room.  Image quality, ease of use, price and after-sales service were all said to be key considerations in the choice of equipment.

“We have worked successfully with Agfa HealthCare’s CR for the last nine years.  A significant part of the decision process was the fact that both DR systems come with the same Musica image processing and workflow as the CR solutions,” explained deputy professional lead for clinical radiology, medical physics and medical photography/illustration Lisa Hickling.  “We are confident in the functionality of the new and current solutions, and our familiarity with them made it easier to adapt to the new systems.  This presented as less training time and resources, in order to get the most from the new systems as rapidly as possible.
