King George Hospital installation transforms patient service

Like many radiology departments, the King George Hospital in Ilford was facing the dilemma of a desperate need for improved workflow and a desire to upgrade to digital imaging, but with a limited budget to make any changes.

The solution to this problem was simple and cost effective, and has transformed the way the radiology team operates. 

By installing the FUJIFILMD-Evo II Retrofit system in all four X-ray rooms, the department has fully upgraded to digital imaging at a fraction of the cost of putting in new rooms.  Benjamin Buckland, lead radiographer, comments “Since installing the Fujifilm FDR D-Evo II solutions for our four X-ray rooms we have been able to transform both our patient service and workflow. Our Department runs much more smoothly now, with reduced waiting times for both Inpatients and Outpatients. In addition there is a significant improvement in the efficiency and workflow for our radiographic team.”

King George’s has been using Fujifilm CR equipment for many years, and the popularity of the user interface was a contributing factor in selecting Fujifilm for the retrofit.  The Fujifilm system also allows the team to easily integrate the console and detector combination into any room as required, which delivers great flexibility and provides a cost efficient investment.
