University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (UCLH) has chosen Samsung RS85 ultrasound systems from MIS Healthcare for its new Royal National ENT and Eastman Dental Hospital building on Huntley Street. These are in addition to four RS85 systems purchased for the main general imaging department.
The UCLH team first purchased Samsung ultrasound systems in 2017 after a full multi-vendor tender with NHS Supply Chain. According to MIS Healthcare, the team chose Samsung RS85 systems based on their image quality, advanced features, user-focused ergonomics and intuitive user interface design. “Over the past two years, the team has found the RS85 systems consistently delivered on image quality, reliability and advanced ultrasound technologies,” states the company.
Consultant radiologist Simon Morley commented: “Samsung offers some fantastic advanced features, such as the unique AI S-Detect thyroid technology, MV Flow and E-Thyroid elastography.”
AI S-Detect thyroid technology gives a computer-aided diagnosis of thyroid nodules as an adjunct to diagnosis, MV Flow provides enhanced visualisation of slow flow microvascularised structures, while E-Thyroid elastography is a strain ratio tool for simple and fast quantification.
Superintendent sonographer Terry Cuthbertson added: “MIS Healthcare has always gone the extra mile – it offers unlimited applications, is very quick to respond and really makes you feel cared for.”
