Althea and Samsung enhance X-ray services in Leicester

X-ray rooms to be replaced with fully-automated systems

Through the trust’s vendor-independent managed service agreement; Althea and Samsung Healthcare have worked with Leicester General Hospital (LGH) to replace its plain X-ray rooms.

Supported by Althea’s implementation and technology experts, LGH selected Samsung’s GC85 from all available systems.

The GC85 is a fully-automated digital suite which reduces physical stress on users, increases patient throughput, and delivers superb image quality.

The new equipment features Samsung’s intuitive three-step workflow which takes the user easily through worklist, acquisition and review.

LGH is now able to share its lightweight detectors between Samsung X-ray rooms – adding greater flexibility and reducing costs.

These state-of-the-art detectors offer a high DQE, but still maintain the ability to deliver fantastic images.

Andy Mear, plain film superintendent, said: “Everyone has been blown away by the new equipment and we can’t wait to get all of the new rooms installed.”
