Image quality, ergonomics & industry reputation cited as reasons for selection
Canon Medical Systems UK has installed an Aplio™ i600 diagnostic ultrasound system at North Devon District Hospital, part of Northern Devon Healthcare NHS Trust, to support the expansion of imaging service capacity and bolster clinical confidence. It will be situated in a new multi-use room and used predominately for breast imaging procedures.
Featuring Superb micro-vascular imaging (SMI), the Aplio i600 at North Devon District Hospital will be able to expand the level of vascular visualisation and detail to enhance clinical diagnostic confidence when evaluating lesions, cysts and tumours.
Shelley Thompson, Superintendent Sonographer at North Devon District Hospital states, “One of the main drivers for a new ultrasound system was to develop our capacity for breast imaging. The imaging quality and ergonomics of the Aplio i600 stood out during the clinical evaluations, as did the industry reputation of Canon Medical Systems. The Aplio i600 is a very versatile system to suit the wide spectrum of work we carry out in the department, which includes interventional procedures performed by Radiologists.”
“We’re delighted to have installed our first Canon Medical Systems ultrasound unit into North Devon District Hospital and that technical quality, versatility, ergonomics and market reputation played a part in our selection,” states Henry Lewis, Sales Specialist at Canon Medical Systems UK. “We will now continue to support the department with ongoing service and applications needs.”
In addition to breast imaging workload, the Canon Medical Systems Aplio i600 was also selected by North Devon District Hospital for its versatility in interventional imaging. The installation includes the full range of diagnostic ultrasound transducers to give clinical flexibility across breast, paediatric, vascular, interventional and general procedures.
