UK MOD takes delivery of another class-leading Philips Healthcare and Marshall CT Scanner system

September 15, 2015

London, UK, Royal Philips (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHIA) today announces that the UK MOD has taken delivery of a new deployable, Queen’s Award winning, CT Scanner from Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group. This latest version is on display on stand N8-178 in the Medical Zone during DSEI from 15 to 18 September.

Fitted in the expandable Marshall shelter is the latest Philips Healthcare Ingenuity Elite 128-slice CT Scanner, which provides ultra-high resolution imagery in less than a minute enabling diagnosis or essential surgery to take place quickly.

“This contract is a great testament to the engineering skills of both Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group and Philips Healthcare.  We are very proud to be able to provide medical solutions such as these to the UK’s defence forces and their medical teams so that they can see diagnostic imagery and provide high quality care as close as possible to conflict zones,” said Steve Fitz-Gerald, Chief Executive of Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group.

The Marshall CT Scanner is designed to be transported by land, sea or air using both civil and military logistics chains.  On arrival at its tasking location the team is able to have the scanner providing its first patient imagery within four hours.  This is possible because of the layout of the equipment in the shelter which negates the need to re-calibrate it each time it is deployed. The main scanner unit, or Gantry, does not move during transit and so does not need to be certified each time it is moved, unless required by local regulations.  It was this design that led to the company being awarded a Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the Innovation category in 2013.

The Philips Ingenuity Elite 128-slice CT Scanner provides ultra-high resolution imagery to medical teams with excellent spatial resolution.

Says Derek Tarrant, International Key Account Manager, Philips Healthcare “With the Ingenuity Elite, it’s all about clinical confidence. The Ingenuity uses our iPatient and iDose4 iterative reconstruction techniques coupled with the NanoPanel Elite detector system to manage the radiation dose but without sacrificing image quality. It delivers scans in seconds rather than minutes making all the difference in critical and emergency situations”.

Marshall, in partnership with Philips, has delivered CT scanners to the French Military medical services - le Service de Santé des Armées (SSA), the Norwegian Defence Medical Services and to the UK.
