CT scanning facility for veterinary hospital

CT scanning facility for veterinary hospital

Midland Lead Healthcare supplied lead-lined plasterboards with accompanying lead strips and battens to Northwest Surgeons for use in the construction of a new CT scanning facility.

Midland Lead supplied both an internal and external lead door, together with a lead viewing window. All products were code 5, suitable for use across a range of diagnostic applications.

Northwest surgeons, a veterinary referral hospital, offers excellent facilities to its patients, which up until 2015 included an in-house MRI scanner, two x-ray suites, ultrasound scanning and a wide range of endoscopic imaging equipment. For 5 years the facility used a mobile scanning service which visited once a week.

Due to the growth in case load and the hospital’s acquisition by the Pets at Home Vet Group in 2015, the decision was made to invest in their own CT scanning facility. Construction took place in November of the same year and the first patient was scanned in December.

Midland Lead offer a wide range of products from lead-lined boards, through to lead doors and lead glass, together with personal protective clothing. As well as the supply of radiation protection products, they offer practices support in the specification and design of facilities requiring radiation shielding together with a complete supply and fit service if required.
