Static CT system for Spire Hartswood

Administration team leader Wendy Rothon, Toshiba account executive Colin Pellow, radiology manager Andrew Milne and CT lead radiographer Dev Matabudul.


Spire Hartswood Hospital at Brentwood, Essex, has acquired a Toshiba Aquilion 64 CT scanner, enabling it to offer CT scans from a static scanner rather than a visiting mobile unit.  


The new scanner is sited in a purpose-built extension.  It is the second system supplied to the Spire Healthcare Group recently, the first having been installed at Spire Cambridge Lea Hospital.


The Aquilion has a comprehensive array of software packages designed for fast and easy workflow.


Radiology manager Andrew Milne commented: “We are able to undertake more complex work with the new system.  We like its functionality, speed, ergonomic design and easy-to-use software. 


“We can now do the full range of cross-sectional imaging, including a wider range of interventional procedures such as CT-guided biopsy and calcium scoring.”
