Northland District Health Board has upgraded its X-ray imaging systems, which it says will better serve the people of Northland.
The board says the MOBILETT Elara Max and Ysio MAX systems, based at Whangarei Hospital, deliver cutting-edge digital X-ray imaging and are a first for New Zealand.
“The systems have provided great improvements in workflow efficiency while delivering the highest quality imaging possible and therefore have the added benefit of potentially decreasing wait-times,” general manager of surgical and support services Mark McGinley says.
Mr McGinley adds that having state-of-the-art technology helps the hospital attract and retain the best medical staff, thereby further improving patient outcomes.
