Leicester bites off another digital transformation

Asteral has completed another major installation at University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust by installing a range of digital dental x-ray equipment as part of their Managed Equipment Services contract.

The latest round of equipment – a Kodak K8000C OPG/Ceph dental x-ray system and a Kodak K2200 Intra-Oral dental x-ray with CR7400 – has been installed at the Glenfield Hospital and completes the move to a totally digital solution across Leicester’s hospitals with other installations of Kodak equipment at the Leicester Royal Infirmary dating back to December 2007.

Nick Clark, Superintendent Radiographer at the Glenfield Hospital said “we worked closely with Asteral to identify the best equipment for our clinical requirements and we are delighted with the results. Having standardised equipment across our hospitals will improve safety and efficiency as clinicians who work across different sites will find the same state-of-the-art digital equipment wherever they go.”
