When the team at Glangwili General Hospital were looking to replace their hard-pressed emergency X-ray room, they had patient throughput, ease of use and image quality as their primary requirements. They looked at the equipment on offer from various manufacturers before choosing their new Samsung GC85 DR suite (GC85iQuia). It was felt that this unit would deliver on all their requirements.
Samsung’s exclusive UK Partner, MIS Healthcare, supported the whole installation and training process to ensure that the Health Board could obtain the full benefit of this world beating equipment. The GC85 features fully automated movement and exposures based on full integration of their APR and RIS systems. This reduces the physical stress placed on Radiographers and ensures that the system is very easy to use.
Site Superintendent Peter Davies commented that: “Staff are delighted with their new X-Ray room which allows a much higher throughput of patients via their very busy Emergency Department. The improved flexibility of the new DR unit allows examinations to be undertaken on the room’s table and upright detectors as well as on emergency trolleys resulting in reduced radiation dose and improved image quality"..
