Pictured following the recent installation of three Hologic Fluoroscan mini X-ray c-arm systems supplied by Vertec to Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham are (from left): fellow – hand surgery Rizwana Imran, registrar – plastic surgery Muhammad Haris Javaid, registrar – trauma and orthopaedics Cathryn Gray, fellow – hand surgery Qureish Vanat, Vertec product specialist Keith Lakin, CT2 – plastic surgery Yash Verma, JSD higher – burns and plastics Alexandra Fielding, specialist trainee – plastic surgery Davina Cavallaro, consultant – trauma and orthopaedics Ross Fawdington, international training fellow – burns and plastics Faryal Zafar and consultant – hand surgery Manish Gupta.
For use in the operating theatre, Fluoroscan was designed from the outset for the specialist hand and foot surgeon. It features a flat detector system for high resolution, distortion-free, image quality via a 75 micron array and 2k x 1.5k resolution, ideal for small anatomy. For ease of use, InSight has easy positioning and distortion-free imaging with automatic motion and metal detection supported by touch screen operation.
Importantly, Vertec include comprehensive IR(ME)R training and applications training for all theatre staff as standard. Free from the need for specialist operators, lists are much simpler to construct, timings are more grounded and emergencies easier to accommodate.
