The rollout of Fujifilm Visionary Suite room solutions to BMI Healthcare hospitals across the UK continues with BMI Blackheath Hospital in London. As part of a 3 year contract Fujifilm will be supplying all BMI Healthcare’s DR requirements for rooms, mobiles and retrofits.

BMI Blackheath Hospital’s radiology department has undergone a complete re-design and renovation including new MRI, CT and digital x-ray equipment. One of the main objectives was to incorporate the ability to use image stitching in the new room which was not previously possible, and in doing so transform the service that the hospital is able to offer to patients and consultants.

We needed an excellent and quick solution for DR stitching,

said Stephanie Harris, Senior Radiographer.

The specification for the new Visionary Suite room matches the service we provide our patients and aligns with objectives for significant dose reductions with the new room. Our clinicians should see a significant improvement in image quality and the ability to do image stitching is a priority for them.

One feature which the team at BMI Blackheath rely on is the Memory Mode on the D-EVO II detector. This feature stores up to 100 images on the detector which enables it to be used outside of the Visionary Suite room with another x-ray source. The images are then retrieved when the detector is returned to the console in the Visionary Suite. This allows the radiographers to benefit from the exceptional image quality which is delivered by the Fujifilm patented technology not only in the new room but across the whole department.

We are delighted with our new Visionary Suite room

said Rebecca King, Imaging Manager.

The training and support we have had from Fujifilm both during the installation and since the equipment went live has been excellent, and our applications specialist is always available when we need some support.
