The London Clinic upgrades imaging technology with triple ultrasound installation

11 August, 2010  

The London Clinic has installed three ACUSON S2000 ultrasound systems from Siemens Healthcare to support a wide range of diagnostic applications.

One of the systems has been installed in The London Clinic’s Breast Centre, one in an interventional room and the third in a general imaging unit, performing a range of examinations from urology to musculoskeletal. All three portable units are also proving highly beneficial to The London Clinic’s radiology department as well as its new £80m cancer centre where patients can be screened in their rooms.
The S2000 is a premier solution ideal for routine examinations in breast, cardiac, OB/GYN, small parts and vascular imaging, as well as deep abdominal penetration for challenging cases. Its knowledge-based workflow applications further improve ease-of-use and help to facilitate workflow. The adaptive ergonomics of the S2000 have been designed to reduce Repetitive Strain Injury with streamlined, natural and extended reach zones to put the most frequently used controls in easy reach. A flexible articulating arm and high resolution 19-inch flat-panel display ensure that the monitor is in the optimum position with the best possible image quality in all lighting situations.
“The S2000 systems are fantastic to work with in terms of both their design and image quality,” said Sophie Auld, Superintendent Radiographer at The London Clinic.

“In particular, the mobility of the systems has been incredibly useful, particularly in interventional settings, as we can wheel them into various clinics and suites in both our main hospital site and in the cancer centre wherever and whenever they are required. This enables us to provide a fast and effective service for both inpatients and outpatients.”
“The London Clinic is renowned for investing in the latest state-of-the-art technology and we are delighted that our advanced S2000 ultrasound systems are playing a key role in the delivery of high quality healthcare,” said Annie Makin, Regional Sales Manager for Ultrasound at Siemens Healthcare.

“It is testament to the excellent image quality and versatility of these systems that they can be employed for such a wide range of examinations.
