New State Of The Art Xray Suite

We believe in giving our patients the very best care we can and we recently invested in a new state of the art x-ray system. Both the machine that takes the x-rays and the developing machine have been replaced with the highest grade system on the market.  

The radiation dose to patients has been drammatically cut and image quality has also significantly improved. We decided to buy the Agfa CR 30-X with the very latest technology- Musca2, see link for more information:  http://www.agfa.com/en/he/knowledge_training/technology/musica

We replaced the x-ray machine with a high frequency generator unit, which also uses the very latest technology. This system is made by a world leading manufacturer and is designed to take accurate, low dose x-rays.

Once the x-rays are taken, they can be viewed instantly, turned into jpeg images (which can be emailed / printed)  or burned onto CD. Copies of your x-rays are made available at no extra cost

Patient Eleanor Chubb and co driver Richard Hollis are attempting to undertake a really epic challenge - 9000km through Africa cutting straight across the Sahara Desert in a 25 year old 602cc Citroen 2CV tinsnail as part of the 2009 Touareg Trail. They have created and will maintain the car themselves.

Aiming to raise £5000 for Motor Neurone Disease Association, they will travel for a month from Brussels (Belgium), across France, Morocco, Mauritania, Mali, Burkina Faso and finish by the sea in Benin. Accompanied by 24 other Citroen 2CV's they set off on October 31st and reach the finish by November 29th. The journey includes some of the harshest terrain on the planet!
