Satellite Clinics Benefit From SonoSite’s M-Turbo®
The Royal Berkshire Hospital (RBH) in Reading uses SonoSite’s M-Turbo® hand-carried ultrasound system to provide services to patients.
“In addition to our clinics at RBH, we operate a number of outreach clinics which enable patients to receive treatment closer to home. We have two M-Turbo systems – one based primarily at the West Berkshire Community Hospital in Thatcham, the other transported between clinics at Wallingford, Henley and Wokingham – allowing us to offer same day scans and increasing patient convenience. One of the main benefits of the instrument is its compact size; it is not too bulky or heavy, is durable, and fits easily into a car. Image quality is good, and we can visualise changes in the joints and detect and treat arthritis earlier, which is highly beneficial to the patient. The response to treatment can be monitored – and demonstrated to patients – by comparing the initial baseline scan with subsequent ultrasound images. It’s a really nice way for patient and consultant to jointly make treatment decisions.”
