Like many hospitals in the UK, Sheffield Children’s Hospital operates across a site that combines a Victorian main building with more modern structures that have been incorporated into the site over the years.  Older sites can often prove challenging for modern healthcare equipment, and Sheffield Children’s Hospital were looking for a mobile unit that could cope with their more difficult spaces and access routes.

"We needed a user friendly and manoeuvrable DR mobile and the Fujifilm FDR nano has certainly given us that."said Christopher Heafey, Deputy Superintendent Radiographer at Sheffield Children’s Hospital. "We find it very easy to move, it handles the many slopes we have around the Sheffield Children's Hospital building with ease and its very small footprint makes positioning, even in small spaces, straightforward."

The FDR nano is exceptionally portable, with great visability and unrivalled agility.  Patented image processing algorithms and ultra-sensitive D-EVO II detectors enabled Fujifilm to create a revolutionary design that is unique in mobile x-ray.  The Virtual Grid™ and Dynamic Visualization II™ technologies ensure optimal image quality combined with excellent dose performance. 

The lightweight D-EVO II detectors, which feature IPX6 waterproofing and Hydro Ag™ antibacterial coating, can be charged in the FPD lockable storage compartment.  

"We've noticed immediate dose savings with no reduction in image quality."said Christopher. "The DEVO-II detector's curved edges also make it very easy to slide into position under patients.  Overall we’ve very happy with our new FDR nano, and the Fujifilm installation and applications teams have been very supportive. "
