Diagnostic imaging suite
The University has recently invested into a new cutting-edge X-ray suite to provide the next generation of radiographers the most advanced skills.
The Fujifilm Advanced Visionary X-ray Suite, the first of its kind to be installed in a university in the UK, is equipped with the latest technological developments in both X-ray image acquisition and X-ray image processing, replacing the University’s current system.
The new kit is designed to improve the preciseness of X-ray imaging while reducing the operational dose rate, which is better for patients.
The equipment represents a significant investment for the University as we continually look to improve our existing equipment, essentially future-proofing our training facilities for students.
The equipment can produce high-quality diagnostic images but it also has increased functionality to provide a number of image acquisition types including dual energy subtraction imagery, digital tomosynthesis and ‘virtual grid’ software.
“This combination means we are able to offer significant training opportunities, continued professional development events for qualified staff and students, as well as providing a platform for future clinical and academic research collaborations.”
The University also launched a new expanded Ultrasound Simulation Suite which features an additional three new units to help increase capacity for simulation. The new equipment, which cost a further £250,000, was funded by Health Education East Midlands to support sonography trainees in the region.
