Fairford Medical has completed an upgrade to the scanner installed in its first CT ScanBox. Brought to market two years ago, the CT ScanBox was initially fitted with a Canon Medical Systems Aquilion 64. However, demand for higher quality, lower dose, reliable CT scanners was fuelled by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Fairford Medical decided to replace the older system with an Aquilion Prime 160-slice CT in order to offer a suitable unit as quickly as possible when the crisis was reaching a peak. It took the company eight weeks to completely upgrade the ScanBox to accept the new unit and commission it.
