New paediatric services at Portland Hospital supported by Siemens Definition AS CTMay 8, 2013-Frimley,UK-An evolution in services at the Portland Hospital in central London, from historically a women’s and maternity hospital to an institution of clinical excellence for women and children, has been supported with the installation of a Definition AS+ CT scanner from Siemens Healthcare. Siemens project management worked closely with the HCA project team and building contractors to ensure the installation was completed on time.

The Definition AS+ CT was selected due to its right dose innovations to support not only the diagnostic needs of paediatric patients, but also as a valuable post-operative imaging tool. It is being used in the areas of neurology, spinal cases and craniofacial 3D reconstruction.

Lucy Hall, Imaging Services Manager at Portland Hospital part of HCA states, “I visited RSNA at the end of 2011 and was really impressed with Siemens research and development in the area of CT. The scanner innovations with new detectors and low dose features made me confident they were the best on the market. When the need arose to introduce CT as a new service at the Portland Hospital, Siemens was the only choice.

”She continues, “We have close links with Great Ormond Street with many of our paediatric consultants also working there and using Siemens technology. It made good sense to stay with the same imaging platform to make the most of protocol expertise.

”“We are delighted to be working with the Portland Hospital and supplying CT innovations that support its business growth vision,” states Malcolm Pickering, Regional Sales Manager at Siemens Healthcare. “The Definition AS+ is an excellent choice for paediatric CT imaging needs. It features our Combined Applications to Reduce Exposure (CARE) functionality to ensure the right dose levels and Fully Assisting Scanner Technologies (FAST) to enable clinicians to undertake time-consuming and complex procedures faster. Plus its wide 78cm bore design helps little patients feel more comfortable during procedures.
