A £90,000 investment in state-of-the-art X-ray equipment by Practice Plus Group Hospital, Emersons Green will improve patient waiting times and enhance the accuracy of diagnostic imaging.
The new Carestream Dental Cone Beam CT Scanner, one of only two in South Gloucestershire, allows the radiology team to zoom in on areas as small as a single tooth’s root, as well as capture facial imaging and detailed images of bone and soft tissue.
Not only does the new equipment enhance the hospital’s digital capacity in the area of dental X-ray, but it also aids diagnosis by improving the quality of the X-ray. The equipment makes the process faster and more efficient, with benefits to patient comfort and experience.
“We are delighted with the new state-of-the-art equipment that allows us to further enhance the service we can offer in this department.
“Our investment in the very latest diagnostic imaging equipment emphasises our commitment to providing our patients with outstanding service and care, be they NHS patients, insured patients or self-pay patients. Everyone receives the same high levels of care from our dedicated team.”Radiology manager Louisa Shreeves
