Canon Medical Systems UK reselected to deliver productive imaging partnership
Canon Medical has been reselected by Aintree University Hospital, part of Liverpool University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, to replace two end of life CT scanners with two new Aquilion ONE GENESIS Edition CT systems.
Aintree University Hospital serves a large patient population and is a regional major trauma centre. The biggest challenge the Trust faced in the last year has been an unprecedented increase of six percent in emergency attendances. An investment upgrade, including the latest CT scanners, aims to strengthen frontline clinical services.
Canon Medical is a long-standing provider of medical imaging equipment to Aintree University Hospital. It was reselected to provide the replacement CT scanners based on its service reliability and latest generation innovations that lower patient dose, enhance patient comfort and powers departmental workflow productivity.
“The new Aquilion ONE GENESIS Edition CTs offer the latest technology for our clinical imaging services and drive down dose,” states Karen Irwin, Cross Sectional Imaging Manager at Aintree University Hospital. “However, an imaging partnership isn’t just about a technology upgrade or installation. We can rely on Canon Medical’s service team to be responsive and reliable to keep our scanners up and running. Should we experience a breakdown, they will get us back up and running as quickly as possible – this gives us incredible confidence in a climate of growing NHS pressures.”
“We have enjoyed a great relationship with Aintree University Hospital for many years providing commercial, application and service support,” states Colin Murray, Account Manager at Canon Medical Systems UK. “This has developed honest, close and productive collaborative working that the Trust was keen to continue. We’re delighted to see the new generation CT scanners take their place in the imaging department and look forward to supporting the delivery of better patient outcomes, increased comfort and reduced examination times.”
