The University of Derby’s College of Health and Social Care’s new X-ray room was recently opened at a ceremony conducted by the Vice Chancellor of the University Professor Kathryn Mitchell, the Dean of the College of Health and Social Care, Dr Paula Crick, and the President of the College of Radiographers, Steve Herring.
“Our new equipment has exceeded all our expectations” says Chris Alvey, Senior Lecturer in Diagnostic Imaging. “The Visionary Suite room solution installed by Fujifilm is a fully integrated x-ray system that consists of 'state-of-the-art' X-ray acquisition equipment with the latest image enhancement and post processing options. It has an array of advanced image acquisition options and the Synapse PACS image storage solution that was provided is superb. Both systems together represent a future-proofed investment for the University."
“We were very impressed with the commitment that Fujifilm demonstrated in ensuring we are able to offer top quality teaching and training facilities for our students. As a primary teaching site, our main objective was to procure the latest technology and equipment that would offer superior educational opportunities. Fujifilm provided a solution that meets all those requirements and also offered lecture support from their installation and training teams."
“During the tender process Fujifilm scored higher in almost all categories which we deemed to be business critical. They were very competitively priced and, although value for money was not our main objective, it was obviously important. Fujifilm were able to offer a superior turnkey solution within both timescale and budgetary requirements. We were also very keen to have a single point of contact to manage the whole process and to liaise with contractors on our behalf. Fujifilm delivered this service for us which resulted in a smooth transition and all the work was completed with the minimum of disruption. We found the whole experience very professional.”
