BRHC supports centralisation of specialist paediatric …

The Bristol Royal Hospital for Children (B.R.H.C) is going through an expansion to facilitate the centralisation of all specialist children's services in a single, state-of-the-art children's hospital. To support an increase in workload, the hospital has invested in three A.R.C.A.D.I.S® Varic C-arms from Siemens Healthcare to provide treatment for local Bristol children plus specialist care for children across the South West and nationally. The three A.R.C.A.D.I.S Varics, which are in use 24/7, are being used for general surgery in addition to specialist spinal, neurosurgery, plastic and orthopaedic procedures. The technology is also supporting the hospital’s established Paediatric Cardiac Unit for the treatment of children with congenital heart problems. The systems are ensuring optimum safety for young patients and staff with dose reduction features such as a dose free collimation and multi-level dose control. “We selected the A.R.C.A.D.I.S Varic following an evaluation of a number of systems. Staff were already familiar with the system, so ease of use was also a deciding factor,” states Elin Jones, Superintendent Paediatric Radiographer at The Bristol Royal Hospital for Children. “They sit in our newly refurbished department which has a relaxing ambience and child-focussed decor to ensure the best possible experience for our young patients and their families.” The system’s mobile C-arm is counterbalanced removing the need for it to be locked into place, enhancing ease of use for clinicians and providing easy patient access.

West Suffolk Hospital improves MR diagnoses and …

West Suffolk Hospital, part of West Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust, has been able to increase the clinical offering its expanding M.R department provides to patients through the installation of a new system from Siemens Healthcare. The busy department, which currently examines over 10,000 patients per annum, anticipates the new technology will reduce the number of studies patients have to undergo as a result of more detailed M.R procedures. Siemens Healthcare’s MAGNETOM® Aera M.R system was selected by the hospital following a thorough appraisal of three systems, with the Aera’s short wide bore design acting as an influencing factor in the decision-making process. The hospital, that already uses a MAGNETOM Symphony 1.5T from Siemens, sought a versatile system that could handle high patient throughput and increasing levels of demand. The Aera has now been installed at the hospital, with a Tim (Total imaging matrix) integrated coil technology upgrade to be incorporated later in the year to the Symphony system. M.R is becoming a modality of choice for many patients and as such we are confident that this installation will play a big role in keeping West Suffolk Hospital at the forefront of imaging,” states Claire Moore, Superintendent Radiographer at West Suffolk Hospital.  “We know from past experience that Siemens’ systems are trustworthy workhorses that can be relied upon. The new technology will help us to address the high levels of constant demand that we experience as a department, without compromising on image quality or coil design.” Claire Moore adds, “The wide bore is very important for us; not only does it mean that patients feel less intimidated, but also that hard to access areas of the body that are usually against the side of the magnet – such as shoulders and wrists – are easier to image due to the larger field of view. With the Aera, image quality is perfect from the middle of the body right to the edge.” The MAGNETOM Aera will enable West Suffolk Hospital to enhance its clinical scope to include whole body and small bowel imaging. Hospital staff also believe the Diffusion-Weighted Imaging functionality of the system will serve as an aid to diagnosis, making more complicated scans easier to interpret. The Aera’s excellent image quality and ease-of-use have also been cited as key benefits, with the system providing 48 channels, lightweight coils and D.O.T technology to give radiographers the flexibility to personalise examinations for patients. Graham Walker, Regional Sales Manager at Siemens Healthcare states, “We are pleased to support West Suffolk Hospital in the expansion of its range of M.R services and clinical scope through this installation. The high resolution imaging offered by the MAGNETOM Aera M.R system keeps the focus squarely on patients, with the wide bore design providing heightened levels of ... Read more
