Staff at Calderdale Royal Hospital in Halifax have been enjoying the benefits of a recent DR upgrade with Fujifilm’s D-Evo II Retrofit room solution. 

The staff are really happy with the new equipment.

said Nicola Stephenson, General Radiology Team Lead, Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust. 

We’ve been able to speed up workflow and it’s given the department a real buzz as we’re able to deliver a much better service.  We have improved patient flow through both the main department and A&E, which is of paramount importance especially at a time of winter pressures.

Fujifilm’s Retrofit offers a cost effective solution that allows hospitals to upgrade old CR equipment to DR with the minimum of disruption.  Calderdale’s sister hospital, Huddersfield Royal Infirmary, also upgraded with the Retrofit solution last year and had purchased an FDR Go mobile the year before.  The full suite of D-Evo II detectors used across the Trust also includes Virtual Grid™ which delivers exceptional image quality at low doses.  In addition it enables radiographers to improve workflow efficiency by eliminating the need for a physical grid and hence speeding up examinations.

Image quality was key to our decision. At Calderdale we already had Fujifilm CR and the transition to Fujifilm DR  was easy.  We found the new D-Evo II detector and console very user friendly. The installation engineers and Applications Specialists have been great and the staff training went really well.  This solution has also been good value for money for the Trust.  All round our experience of Fujifilm has been excellent.

, said Nicola.
