The Royal United Hospitals Bath (RUH) NHS Foundation Trust has received two Zenition 70 C-arm systems from Philips. Specialist radiographer Andrew Setchell said: “The Zenition 70s are reliable, robust, user-friendly and make training other colleagues easy. The two units enable us to support urology and orthopaedic theatre cases.
“We particularly like the touch screen image rotation and collimation features as well as the laser lights on both the x-ray tube and detector.”
RUH is a medium-sized provider of secondary care and some specialised services. The trust looks after a community of 500,000 people across Bath and north-east Somerset, north and west Wiltshire, the Mendips and south Gloucestershire. This includes emergency and unplanned care, as well as a planned surgical, medical, maternity and diagnostics service.
Engineered for continuous imaging with SmartFilters’ enhanced heat management for longer procedures, the Zenition 70 C-arm with flat detector helps increase efficiency. Operators at all experience levels can comfortably use the system due to its easy-to-use interface, including its ‘point and shoot’ design and on-screen guidance.
Philips’ Unify workflow is designed to take the complexity and frustration out of surgical imaging tasks.
