University Hospital of Wales updates its cardiology service

University Hospital of Wales has replaced an existing system with an AlluraClarity FD10/10 biplane cardiovascular lab from Philips UKI.  The hospital is part of the South Wales cardiology network’s renewal programme and the new equipment includes special features and protocols for interventional cardiology.

Superintendent radiographer Penny Lloyd said: “We are finding we have increased patient throughput and are achieving better image quality, while at the same time lowering dose.  The equipment replaced an existing Philips lab so training was quick and easy.”
