BMI The Thornbury Hospital in Sheffield has seen improved workflow since the installation of a FDR Visionary Suite. The room includes a D-Evo II detector, Fujifilm’s flagship x-ray room, which offers patented image processing tools Dynamic Visualization II and Virtual Grid. When combined these technologies are said to provide a significant reduction in dose and deliver superior image quality. Clinical services manager (imaging) John Ulyatt said: “We are looking forward to the dose saving features, the improvement in image quality and the productivity efficiencies having a hugely positive impact on our patients and the wider Sheffield community.
“Since installation last year Fujifilm’s Visionary Suite has improved workflow at the hospital, which is crucial to a single-room department. This is mainly due to the system’s highly intuitive nature and ease of use; all our staff have found it very user-friendly. I have seen a remarkable improvement in image quality and our clinicians tell me they are very happy. The new room should allow us to accelerate and improve the patient experience, resulting in shorter waiting times and greater efficiency. Speed is incredibly important to our patients and we’re thrilled to be in a position to offer them an exceptionally fast service.”
