Althea and Samsung Enhance X-ray Services in Leicester

Through the Trust’s vendor-independent managed service, Althea and Samsung Healthcare have worked with Leicester General Hospital (LGH) to replace their plain x-ray rooms. Supported by Althea’s Implementation & Technology experts, LGH selected Samsung’s GC85 from all available systems.

The GC85 is a fully-automated digital suite which reduces physical stress on users, increases patient throughput, and delivers superb image quality.  The new equipment features Samsung’s intuitive 3-step workflow which takes the user easily through worklist, acquisition and review.

LGH is now able to share their lightweight detectors between Samsung x-ray rooms – adding greater flexibility and reducing costs.  These state-of-the-art detectors offer a high DQE but still maintain the ability to deliver fantastic images. 

Andy Mear, plain film superintendent, said: “Everyone has been blown away by the new equipment and we can’t wait to get all of the new rooms installed.”
