• DX-D 30C Retrofit was selected for its ease of use, image quality and patient dose reduction potential.
• The solution comes with a cesium iodide (CsI) detector and offers wireless capability.
• Upgrade was implemented in August 2014.

Agfa HealthCare announces today that the Yeovil District Hospital (UK), part of the Yeovil Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, has upgraded two existing X-ray rooms with the DX-D 30C direct radiography (DR) Retrofit solution. Implemented as part of Agfa HealthCare’s ‘Fast Forward to Digital Program’, the solution has improved imaging speed and quality at this district hospital.

Improved workflow and reduced exam time
The 345-bed Yeovil District Hospital provides a full range of clinical services, including general medicine, cardiology, general surgery, orthopedic surgery, trauma and pediatrics. Serving South Somerset, North and West Dorset and parts of Mendip each year, it handles around 20,000 emergency admissions, 3,500 elective admissions and 18,000 day cases.

In August 2014, the hospital implemented Agfa HealthCare’s cost-effective DX-D 30C Retrofit solution in two X-ray rooms with the Fast Forward Program. This program gives healthcare facilities a path to DR, which offers a host of benefits including improved workflow and reduced examination time, immediate verification of patient positioning and image quality, improved accuracy of patient identification and the potential for dose reduction with cesium iodide (CsI) detectors.

Minimizing patient wait times
“We strive to keep patient waiting times throughout the hospital as low as possible, by meeting and exceeding the standards demanded of us through national targets,” says Fiona Rooke, Radiology Manager of Yeovil District Hospital. “Upgrading our existing X-ray rooms to DR supports us in achieving our goals. We chose the DX-D 30C DR Retrofit because it offered us the ease of use, image quality and potential for patient dose reduction we were looking for.”

“We are very pleased to have this opportunity to support Yeovil District Hospital to continue to provide top-quality healthcare to its patients, with a solution that allows it to maximize the investment already made in its existing X-ray rooms,” says Grant Witheridge, General Manager of Agfa HealthCare UK. “The goal of our Fast Forward to Digital Program is to make it possible for every hospital whatever size or budget to achieve the advantages of DR, in order to provide the best possible care and service to patients.”
