The Welsh Institute of Chiropractic (WIOC), an outpatient clinic within the University of South Wales recently acquired an Aplio 400 ultrasound system, which was delivered with Panoramic and SMI software. The Institute selected Canon Medical for its good reputation, reliability and the local support it provides.
Alison McBride, member of the at WIOC MSK ultrasound team said, “It is an exciting development for us at the Chiropractic Institute as we are expanding our MSK ultrasound service to enable us to provide post-graduate clinical placement opportunities for those trying to fulfil course requirements. The WIOC provides a multi-disciplinary holistic approach to dealing with MSK problems and the ultrasound department is an essential part of the service.”
The WIOC is chiropractic training centre which is fully integrated within the University of South Wales. The outpatient clinic was purpose built in 2000 to allow the fourth year student clinicians on the Master of Chiropractic degree to undertake their clinical training. It offers a wide range of healthcare services to the community including chiropractic care, rehabilitation and diagnostic imaging.
The Aplio series is Canon’s premium system for general imaging and comes with advanced imaging and productivity features to satisfy the most robust requirements and boost efficiency. The Aplio 400 at the WIOC comes with Panoramic View SMI, which complements colour Doppler techniques in visualising small micro-vasculature.
