The radiology team at Berwick Infirmary offer a dental imaging service which, until recently, relied on an old CR reader located in the main x-ray department.  Dental patients needed to wait until the cassette had been returned to the department and read before they were released, creating longer waiting times for patients and workflow delay for the team.

The installation of a NewTom GO 2D system has transformed the dental imaging service at Berwick Infirmary and significantly reduced patient dose.  The GO 2D offers precision dental imaging in a user friendly, ergonomically designed device, which has made it a popular addition to the department.  With features designed to ensure perfect patient positioning and stability, the GO 2D offers rapid acquisition of high quality images with a range of advanced software and diagnostic functions.

"We have been delighted with our new GO 2D since installation” said Ruth Kinghorn, Site Lead Radiographer at Northumbria NHS Trust.  “It has increased our throughput of patients and made examinations quicker and easier for both staff and patients.  It’s so quick and easy to use, we get images instantly and the image quality is far superior to our old CR system.  We have also seen a reduction in dose of at least 50%.   

“The GO 2D is a great product that more than meets the needs of the dental service which our community infirmary provides.  But equally as impressive has been the customer service and communication we’ve had from Fujifilm – even though we had a few hurdles to overcome!  We chose Fujifilm as a global company with a trusted name for quality and innovation.  We have found they offer fantastic value for the latest in digital technology – and the customer service has been second to none.  Overall our experience of Fujifilm has been fabulous!
