Birmingham Children’s Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, one of the leading paediatric teaching centres in the country, has installed an interventional imaging system and combined fluoroscopy and radiography unit from Siemens Healthcare to strengthen its imaging services for young patients.
The Artis zee Multipurpose interventional system will be used for angiograms, venous and barium studies. It is a flexible system featuring ergonomically designed controls to enable users to operate it smoothly and easily.
The Luminos dRF is a two-in-one solution for fluoroscopy and radiography. It is being used also as a screening facility, performing barium studies when the Artis zee MP is in use.
