“This equipment and facility is currently the show-case of the hospital”
Radiology Services Manager, Frimley Park Hospital
Frimley Park Hospital NHS Foundation Trust has replaced one of its X-ray systems with a state-of-the-art Philips Allura Xper FD20 vascular interventional system, including the latest software packages, Philips’ 3D-RA and XperCT.
“The new Philips equipment set amid the new interventional suite has revolutionised our service in terms of image quality and speed and is also extremely user-friendly. This equipment and facility is currently the show-case of the hospital,” said Philip Ramsey, Radiology Services Manager, Frimley Park Hospital.
The new system, which will be used for all vascular and interventional work with an emphasis on endovascular applications, will allow the hospital to expand its service, including the performance of more complex and minimally invasive procedures such as EVARs (Endovascular Aneurysm Repair).
“We’re very excited to see Frimley Park Hospital benefit from the many advantages the Philips Allura Xper FD20 offers over existing X-ray systems,” commented David Tolhurst, Project Manager, Philips. “With superior resolution and clarity, together with an intuitive user interface and personalised settings, we’re confident this innovative X-ray system will be appreciated by clinicians and patients alike.”
