Cheshire trust installs state-of-the-art X-ray machine


New Siemens X-ray system provides rapid imaging at Congleton War Memorial Hospital

Congleton War Memorial Hospital, part of East Cheshire NHS Trust, has recently installed a Multix Fusion X-ray system.

The Siemens device replaces another that had come to the end of its life.

The Multix Fusion covers all routine applications, providing enhanced image quality and outstanding contrast via the DiamondView Plus post-processing tool. The system also helps keep dose to a minimum with low-absorption table-top material, pre-set copper filters, streamlined monitoring and recording of dose delivered to patients along with intelligent reductions with the use of Caesium iodide (CsI) detectors.

Its compact footprint enables it to fit in virtually any examination room and it is available in analogue or digital configurations to suit a variety of budgets. The system sits in the digital X-ray room at Congleton War Memorial Hospital.

“The Multix Fusion has already proven to be user-friendly,” said Simon Lewis, advanced practitioner radiographer at the hospital. “We are benefitting from rapid image acquisition, low patient dose and remote access and are very happy with the results it delivers.”
