BCF continue to lead the way in the UK and had a lovely visit to Vets One Ltd. recently to install the new GE Revolution CT scanner.
Situated in rural Norfolk, Vets One have transformed from a 1 vet, farm animal practice to a 5 vet small animal practice in just over 4 years and are still growing.
Continuing with their transformation Vets One took the leap and decided to install the latest CT technology, trusting BCF to take care of the entire process.
Practice Manager, Simon Power, explains their reasons for making this decision:
“Our reasons for getting CT were twofold.
The first reason was that the nearest scanner was 45 minutes away and having the scanner on site enables us to provide an immediate service. This is better for patient care and for owners as they see their own vets who they know and are local.
Secondly, having a CT scanner improves the hiring and retaining of staff. We were recently advertising for nurses and vets and had some outstanding candidates, there were many reasons for this but having CT in the practice was routinely quoted as being a huge draw for them.
Our vets also felt that there was too much volume referring out as they then lost the surgery to referring practices. We know we can’t carry out every surgery but our vets felt they were missing out on doing some of the surgery that they know they can do.”
And as to why they chose to purchase from BCF?
“We bought our first Easi-Scan ultrasound 4 years ago, when we started as a farm practice. Later we moved into small animal and purchased X-ray and CR radiography, followed dental radiography and then small animal ultrasound. BCF weren't always the cheapest to buy from but the support is always there when we need it whether it's through good applications training or fast service support when something goes wrong.
Kat has been great for radiography and CT training and great at getting answers to questions.
Installing a CT scanner can sound like a scary project but was made much easier thanks to BCF helping with the planning process and liaising with our builders and architect. GE service support has also been very fast and efficient.”
The GE Revolution ACT scanner can deliver vastly improved image quality and its key improvements and expertly streamlined user interface provides a system that helps users to give the best possible care for their patients.
Amy Ford, Radiographer at Vets One Ltd commented:
“The Revolution ACT is so much faster than previous and much older 16 slice systems that I have used. Not only is the acquisition speed much higher but also reformatting images from the raw data is lightning quick.”

BCF 3D Sales Manager Nigel Perry commented:
“I’ve known Vets One since they set up working from their dining room table 4 years ago and it’s been wonderful to see them keep growing. They have a great attitude to animal care and the investment in state of the art CT will see that take another leap forward.”
