Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust to receive seven Xograph direct digital mobile X-ray systems

Xograph Healthcare : 01 October, 2007  (New Product)
Seven 'Mobile DaRt' Direct Digital Mobile X-ray systems from Xograph Healthcare are to be delivered to Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
The versatile systems will be used for bedside examinations and rapid image delivery across two of the Trust's hospital sites. Four units will be at the Northern General Hospital, home to Sheffield's adult accident and emergency unit. A further three units are earmarked for emergency ward radiography at the Royal Hallamshire Hospital.

Mobile DaRt consists of two technologies - the compact motor driven mobile X-ray unit and the large area CXDI-50G Portable Flat Panel Detector from Canon. The unit’s motor-drive characteristics means that the Mobile DaRt can be moved effortlessly around the hospital, making it ideal for trauma assessment in situ and in ITU environments. The unit’s slim line shape and 'inch-mover' feature optimise the unit for manoeuvring between hospital beds where space is tight.

Mobile DaRt speeds up workflow as high definition digital images are available for review a few seconds after exposure. This superior imaging functionality provides clinicians with sharp images for diagnosis at minimum exposure to the patient.

Andy Brammer, site lead radiographer at Royal Hallamshire Hospital commented, 'The Mobile DaRt is a much quicker and more flexible approach than conventional mobile imaging. Image reviews can take place immediately at the patient's bedside and without the need to remove the detector. This reduces the need for patient handling and also the radiographers know immediately if a repeat exposure is required.'

'Also, with direct digital imaging we are better able to cope with the need for more examinations. For example, when visiting ITU the radiographers can perform more X-rays than they anticipated without needing to go and fetch more cassettes.'

Andrew continued, 'The ability to drive Mobile DaRt from the tube head is also a great feature. The radiographer doesn't need to move around the bed to move the system into position.'
