Dr. Ian Francis, Consultant Radiologist, One looks for good quality in terms of the imaging acquisition, but I think then you want a platform that you have got some confidence in, and that you can live with for a period of time. As we all know, the NHS hasn’t got the capital to replace our scanners, so we need a platform that obviously allows for software updates, enabling us to address evolutions as they happen over the next five to ten years. What was important for me in the choice of scanner was that we can future proof ourselves in a way that with this particular model we can take ourselves forward. Developments that I can see on the near horizon include doing more cardiac work, more virtual colonography, but also then lung health checks are coming so early cancer diagnosis can be made. We wanted to have a system that would allow us to adapt to a change in workflow needs.The project management was done very well throughout, with minimal disturbance to the department. Subsequently the applications training work well and I have been impressed with the responsiveness of Philips.
