InHealth, a UK provider of diagnostic and healthcare solutions to the NHS and independent sector, has selected Canon Medical Systems UK to replace and expand its range of CT scanners. Four Aquilion Prime SP CT Systems have been ordered to support InHealth’s high-quality service provision to more than 2 million patients per year, and underpin the clinical and operational needs of its radiographers and reporting radiologists.
The new orders are the latest in a decade-long CT partnership between the two companies. The four new CT scanners will all operate within InHealth’s mobile fleet as part of its aim to meet the growing needs of general and specialist CT imaging as a frontline healthcare treatment planning and review tool.
“This deal represents a significant investment in renewing and increasing our portfolio of scanners to allow us to continue to meet the growing demand from the healthcare sector, and help deliver better outcomes for our patients. We are excited to be working with Canon Medical Systems and continue to strengthen and expand our presence in the field of diagnostics,” states Geoff Searle, Managing Director – Integrated Services at InHealth.
Alistair Howseman, Sales Director at Canon Medical Systems UK states, “Our strong and long partnership with InHealth is testimony to Canon Medical Systems’ record of providing imaging equipment that is not only best in class for clinical and operational needs, but also to it giving a sound financial return on investment. We are delighted to receive the new order and look forward to providing a smooth installation of the equipment as well as training and meeting ongoing service needs.”
The Aquilion Prime SP CT powers productivity within imaging departments by speeding up and simplifying complex or routine procedures and automating patient positioning. It has been designed to help save time and increase patient throughput, as well as deliver exceptionally low radiation doses and assure clinical confidence in the resulting scans.
