Also Acquires Aquilion Premium CT to Enhance Patient Care and Safety
in New ED
TUSTIN, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Hospital, in New Castle, Pa., opened a brand new emergency
department (ED) to bring advanced healthcare to its patient population.
As part of the new facility, Jameson installed the first RADREX™-i
Wireless digital radiographic (DR) X-ray system and an Aquilion™Premium
CT system from Toshiba America Medical Systems, Inc.Jameson Hospital
utilizes these systems for a variety of exams to improve patient care,
safety and workflow in a high-volume ED setting.
“We went 100 percent wireless at our new facility and RADREX-i Wireless
provides us with a digital, durable and efficient system,” said Jane
Beight, director, Diagnostic Services, Jameson Health System. “For
example, RexView allows our technologists to review images bedside,
keeping them closer to ED patients who are often anxious or in pain.”
RADREX-i Wireless features a lightweight, cableless, 14" x 17" panel
that is easy to use and improves image quality. The system’s RexSpeed
technology and RexView™ with image preview automate exams while allowing
technologists to make point-of-care decisions. The RADREX-i wireless
system provides versatile imaging with high throughput capabilities,
which makes it ideal for urgent care situations.
“Aquilion Premium’s table weight limit, large bore size and fast
acquisition enable us to image more patients, improving workflow,” added
Beight. “The system positions us as a regional leader since we are one
of the first providers in western Pennsylvania with a 160-detector CT.”
Aquilion Premium is an ideal system for the ED, with 160 detector rows
(320 slices) that can image up to 8 cm of anatomy in a single and fast
gantry rotation (as fast as 0.35 seconds). The system’s AIDR 3D
technology significantly lowers dose for safer procedures.
“Toshiba has partnered with Jameson to provide a multi-modality solution
that improves patient care,” said Nancy Gillen, vice president,
Marketing, Toshiba. “With technology that images patients faster and
more accurately, we help our customers successfully navigate the
changing healthcare landscape.”
Jameson Health System is a longtime Toshiba partner and also utilizes an
Aquilion 64 CT, an Aquilion 16 CT and a Kalare™ X-ray system.
