Dual Source Computerised Tomography Scanner - ACHS Award

In order to address increasing demand for computerised tomography (CT) imaging, and provide an ongoing cutting-edge service, options for the purchase of a new CT scanner were investigated. The Hospital Board of Directors approved the purchase of the first Siemens Somatom Definition Dual Source scanner to be installed in Australia.

Alterations were carried out to accommodate the scanner within the existing department, staff were recruited and trained in the use of the scanner and the interpretation of the images it produces, process changes were implemented to improve the CT service and the new scanner was promoted to doctors with numerous education sessions to ensure that they were aware of the new technology now available to them.

As a result San Radiology continues to provide a world-class multi-modality imaging services to doctors and patients.
