The imaging package from Xograph Healthcare also included room refurbishment and the supply of radiation protection, a mobile patient table, a DR detector wall stand and a diagnostic workstation with wireless connectivity with the DRagon X-ray unit.

The new imaging facilities will help to reduce the disruption and associated costs caused by unplanned hospital visits.  Huntercombe personnel can now focus on delivering high quality uninterrupted services to the teenagers in their care.

The DRagon has received great acclaim in humanitarian aid centres in Darfur, Ethiopia; in Afghanistan supporting our military personnel; in forensic medicine; in outside events such as music festivals and motorsports as well as in community-based healthcare schemes
