At Wolverhampton Heart and Lung Centre are consultant echocardiographer Fay Ahmad, deputy clinical service manager Sue Norris, specialised cardiac physiologists Veena Bhatti and Grace Northwood, Philips cardiac ultrasound clinical applications specialist Catherine Hewson and cardiac ultrasound account manager Gillian Nash.
Wolverhampton Heart and Lung centre has purchased four Philips iE33 echocardiography systems with 3D capability and eight Xcelera reporting workstations.
The centre, part of Royal Wolverhampton Hospitals NHS Trust, is a tertiary referral cardiac centre providing a comprehensive inpatient and outpatient echocardiography service under the leadership of consultant cardiac echocardiographer Fay Ahmad.
“This digital equipment will allow our service to expand and remain in the forefront of digital technology developments, providing 2D and 3D transthoracic and transoesophageal echocardiography, stress echo, myocardial perfusion and contrast echo,” said Ahmad. “The new systems will also support the further development of peri-operative and post-operative 3D transoesophageal echocardiography during heart valve repair or replacement surgery performed by our anaesthetics and surgical team.”
