At Papworth Hospital are principal radiographer general imaging Carolyn Dyer, radiology services manager Richard Rowlands and Agfa HealthCare account manager Tracey Morris.
Papworth Hospital NHS Foundation Trust has acquired an Agfa HealthCare DX-G computed radiography system to maintain the radiology department’s efficiency as patient numbers increase.
Replacing an existing Agfa HealthCare CR system, the DX-G is said to offer exceptional image quality and the potential to reduce patient x-ray doses.
Said an Agfa HealthCare spokesperson: “Papworth Hospital in Cambridge is the country’s largest specialist cardiothoracic hospital, treating more than 22,400 inpatient and day cases and 48,400 out-patients each year from across the UK. It is also the largest heart and lung transplant centre.”
