Balfour Hospital Orkney acquires latest Philips’ C-arm equipment     


Guildford, UK Royal Philips (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHIA), Balfour Hospital Orkney recently acquired a Philips’ Zenition 50 9” mobile C-arm.    The new equipment, which replaced a Philips BV Endura C-arm, will provide the hospital with latest technology, enabling more efficient workflow and reducing miscommunication and positioning errors during procedures

We have had a Philips mobile intensifier for the last ten years, which provided excellent reliability.   Therefore, when deciding to purchase a more modern machine with WiFi capability, we again selected a Philips system.   Our previous system provided us with excellent image quality and was very user-friendly.   With the opening of our new hospital we had an opportunity to acquire new equipment, and Phillips was our first choice.   In addition, we have found Philips’ support to be first-class throughout the project.”

The Zenition 50 9” Image Intensifier allows users to work more efficiently with touch controls and navigational aids provided by Philips’ Unity workflow technology.   More time is saved with one-click exam presets and high speed wireless data handling and the intuitive ‘point and shoot’ design of the Zenition 50 helps train staff faster.   In addition, every Zenition system shares a standard windows® platform and is ready to embrace new clinical applications and service and support technologies as they evolve.
