PACS arrives in rural Welsh hospital

Article

Bryn Beryl Community Hospital, part of the North West Wales Trust in the U.K., has converted its maternity ward into a digital x-ray department containing computed radiography equipment from Ferrania. Images from the filmless Bryn Beryl hospital are transferred to Ysbyty Gwynedd Hospital for reporting.

"Instant diagnosis for emergency cases was not possible with the previous traditional systems. Now diagnosis is completed in a matter of minutes for urgent cases. This is greatly improving operational efficiency and patient throughput," said Nerys Jones, senior radiographer at Bryn Beryl.
