Patients at Yeovil Hospital are set to benefit from a brand new, state-of-the-art, X-ray room, meaning faster and shorter appointments.
The new X-ray room is fully automated and controlled using solely a computer. This means that not only are patients’ appointments quicker, but also that the image is available to clinicians immediately, meaning less time spent waiting after the actual appointment is over.
In line with the hospital’s vision to lead the market in delivering new models of care, the room is the first fully automated X-ray room installed by Agfa HealthCare in the country.
Fiona Rooke, Diagnostic Services Manager at Yeovil Hospital, said of the new addition to the department: “Our new X-ray room has already attracted considerable interest from both patients and colleagues in neighbouring trusts, thanks to its innovative nature. Waiting for an appointment, and subsequent results, can be a worrying experience for patients, so being able to cut down the appointment time and have results available immediately is a huge benefit.”
