Siemens Healthcare of Erlangen, Germany, has been chosen by a new U.K. hospital to supply a range of imaging technology, the company said.
Royal Manchester Children's Hospital, part of Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, provides pediatric services to Greater Manchester and Northwest England. The hospital has installed Siemens' Magnetom Avanto 1.5-tesla MRI system, which includes lightweight coils and is designed for pediatric patients, with a low table position of 47 cm, according to Siemens.
The hospital also installed Somatom Definition AS+ CT, which offers a scan length of up to 200 cm and a 78-cm gantry opening, and Artis zee, a multipurpose interventional system that offers flexible architecture for a range of clinical applications.
Finally, the hospital has chosen Siemens' Axiom Luminos dRF combined system for fluoroscopy and radiography.
Other Siemens installations at Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust include a Symbia T6 TruePoint SPECT/CT hybrid system and Symbia S SPECT at Manchester Royal Infirmary, both within walking distance of Children's Hospital.
