The accident and emergency department at the Royal Alexandra Hospital in Paisley may be the first A&E room in Scotland to use solely dDR.
Being one of the largest hospitals in the west of Scotland, serving a population of over 200,000, the department manages a wide spectrum of casualties.
Xograph Healthcare, has installed their buckyStar dDR general radiography system incorporating Canon’s portable, lightweight flat panel dDR detectors, a 23x29cm CXDI-31 and 35x43cm CXDI-50C as well as the fixed 43x43cm CXDI-40EC.
The department has a high throughput of patients with major trauma; the versatile Canon portable detectors enable a reduction in manual handling and can provide images in an instant – highly beneficial when managing patients are immobile and critically ill.
