Konica Minolta reports that its Regius computed radiography system has been installed at VRCC, an Essex-based Veterinary Referral Centre in Laindon.
VRCC is supported by an investment of over £4m, including a six million volt linear accelerator and a multi-slice CT scanner.
Using its own digital archive system, VRCC installed the compact Konica Minolta Regius CR unit for its high resolution, ease of use, reliability and compact design. Requiring virtually no maintenance, and with its ability to produce images in seconds, the system meets the exacting needs of the centre’s workflow.
VRCC’s under one roof premises also include cancer treatment planning, a chemotherapy suite employing specialist oncologic surgeons, a large x-ray suite with auto tilting table for myelograms, a C-Arm fluoroscopy unit, an intensive care unit, video endoscopy, an ultrasound suite, two fully equipped operating theatres and scrub room facilities.
It is designed to facilitate procedures such as perioperative radiotherapy so that animal patients can be moved a short distance to the next procedure, minimising stress, speeding treatment and recovery.
