Medical imaging upgrade for Wexham Park Hospital

Saville Audio Visual installs 5,000-lumen Optoma EH505 projector including DICOM simulation mode

With more than 100,000 A&E attendances every year, Wexham Park Hospital at Slough provides acute services that include cardiology, maternity, stroke and emergency medicine.

To help its multi-disciplinary team view critical images in bright, clear high resolution, the hospital has upgraded the projection capabilities for its Picture Archiving & Communication (PACS) system. This enables specialists in pathology, oncology and radiology to view X-rays, scans and reports and discuss cases together.

Leading technology specialist, Saville Audio Visual, was called in and installed a 5,000-lumen Optoma EH505 projector which includes the special medical DICOM simulation mode - the universal format for PACS image storage and transfer. With WUXGA resolution and powerful image blending tools, the projector delivers spectacular large screen images with outstanding brightness.

Yinka Onifade, PACS systems manager at Wexham Park Hospital, said: "We needed a bright, reliable projector that would need minimal maintenance. I used Optoma projectors in my previous job at Guy's Hospital and knew they are of a good quality and robust. This projector is just what we wanted. The multi-disciplinary team are impressed with the clarity of the images, which has helped to make their job easier. It is money well spent."

Saville Audio Visual account manager, Danny Quay, added: "We recommended the Optoma EH505 due to its brightness, resolution and DICOM simulation mode - ideal for viewing X-rays and scans. Its dust-sealed, filter free design prevents dust from affecting the system ensuring optimal image quality with minimal maintenance. Reliability was a key factor in our recommending this model."
