Diagnostic imaging suite
We have the very latest technology for radiographers including a Fujifilm Advanced Visionary X-ray Suite, the first of its kind to be installed in a university in the UK, and a new expanded Ultrasound Simulation Suite which features an additional three new units to help increase capacity for simulation.
The SimMan is a mannequin who looks just like a human being and can tell you when and where he is experiencing pain. SimMan can be programmed to simulate symptoms during training sessions using your experience and knowledge to help make him healthy again. Our Clinical Skills Suite also contains SimBaby, an infant version of SimMan who is available for paediatric medical training, and we also have a large number of Annies, Kellys and CPD mannequins and blood pressure training arms.
