Feedback has been positive regarding the recent virtual unveiling of the medical imaging suite at Galway Mayo Institute of Technology (GMIT). The recording is now available via the following webinar link.

Representing an investment of €840,000 by Enterprise Ireland, and supported by Galway Mayo Institute of Technology (GMIT), the recent installation of the Philips Azurion 7 M20 digital fluoroscope to the medical imaging suite at GMIT’s Galway campus constitutes an outstanding resource for the medtech industry and academic and clinical researchers alike. 

This fluoroscope is optimised for vascular, non-vascular, cardiovascular and neuro applications and with its high resolution and large field of view it offers superb image quality to evaluate small details and vessels with clarity.

While complimenting the Medical Engineering and Technology (MET) Gateway’s existing expertise in medical imaging, anatomical modelling and physiological replication, the medical imaging suite can also be used for training of clinicians, staff and students in new imaging technologies, the interpretation of medical images and practice techniques as well as the deployment or retrieval of devices.

Additionally, the conference facility will enable live streaming of images to external parties, such as off-site engineering teams, physicians, and research partners.
