System with double C-arm design helps Leicester trust future-proof interventional imaging services

University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust has praised the benefits of a ceiling-mounted Alphenix Sky+ interventional imaging system, six months on from becoming the first location in the UK to receive the equipment from Canon Medical Systems.

Located at Leicester General Hospital, the system’s 270° C-arm rotation around the table gives flexibility for patient access and procedure planning.

“The double C-arm design of the Alphenix Sky+ means that we can do a CT spin from the patient’s side rather than from the head, and it enables prostate imaging on tall patients,” said superintendent radiographer Sarita Modi.

“This will increase our imaging flexibility for a range of different procedures and also understands the individuality of every patient we see.”
