Since 2018, Fujifilm has installed four Visionary Suite room solutions and five mobile units at Tameside and Glossop Integrated Care NHS Foundation Trust. The installation of the fifth digital imaging room at the hospital this year was undertaken in the midst of lockdown.
Despite the challenges posed for both organisations, Fujifilm and Tameside General Hospital worked together to ensure the project was completed safely and efficiently. “Installation was super-efficient as Fujifilm utilised the difficult but quiet period during the pandemic to advantage,” said associate DM clinical support services/radiology manager Helen Johnson.
“The Fujifilm digital imaging solutions – rooms and mobiles – have benefited the radiology service and patients at Tameside in many ways. Workflow efficiency, improved image quality, dose optimisation and reduced physical fatigue of radiographers are just a few. We are looking forward to increasing our fleet of mobiles by another two units soon, and our continued investment in the Fujifilm systems demonstrates how much we value both the quality of the equipment and the excellent service we receive from the team.”
