Canon Medical Systems UK selected for image quality, apps support & service

Three new diagnostic ultrasound systems for first trimester obstetric imaging have been installed into the Maternity Outpatients Department at The Princess Royal Hospital, part of The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust. The three new Aplio i600 systems from Canon Medical Systems UK will sit in side-by-side rooms and used for routine scanning of early pregnancy anomalies, growth and fetal medicine.

“We’ve been well supported by the Canon Medical Systems application specialists since installation. They have tailored our training to what we need and replicated set-up across the three units to ensure continuity of use when our sonographers move between rooms,” states Lindsay Reid, Maternity Outpatients Manager at The Princess Royal Hospital. “The new systems provide great quality images, particularly in cardiac, and will help us deliver a superior quality of maternity services to our patient catchment into the future.”

“We’re delighted to maintain our obstetric ultrasound relationship with The Princess Royal Hospital, which dates back many years under our former identity as Toshiba Medical Systems,” states Nicole Starr, Ultrasound Sales Specialist at Canon Medical Systems UK. “Repeat business is testimony to our company commitment of working hard for our customers and ensuring that frontline imaging systems meet everyday demands and do the job they need to do.”
