The Revolution has begun: BCF install first Veterinary GE Revolution ACT in the UK
BCF have taken the lead once again and had great pleasure in visiting Dragon Veterinary Centre in Cheltenham to install the latest GE Digital CT Scanner: the first to be installed in the UK.

And the verdict?
BCF radiographer and application specialist Kat Evans lead on the installation at Dragon Vets and was excited to be involved in the first UK Installation of the product:
“I was delighted to be involved in the first installation of the Revolution ACT scanner. As a leader in veterinary imaging, BCF focus on the customer and how we can help them improve animal care. The Revolution ACT helps us achieve our aim of making the workflow and diagnostic imaging of animals as easy as possible for customers. It has been great to work with the Dragon Vets team to install the first of these scanners in the UK.”
Commenting on the install Dragon Vet’s Alan Lack (vet) said:
“Firstly, Kat from BCF has been great! The installation and training on the machine was very simple and without hiccup! It was great to have access to a radiographer to set up our protocols and be at the end of the phone should any issues arise.”
Alan then went on to comment on the Revolution ACT as well as why he thinks CT scanning benefits patients:
“I think we’ve done around 16 scans so far and the image quality seems to be excellent. I’ve also found that after the inevitable getting to grips with a new piece of software, the process of performing a scan and acquiring images is straightforward. The machine is easy to turn on and shut down and I’ve been impressed by its cooling speed.”
“As a progressive first opinion practice, we’ve found that CT has already benefited our patients: detecting subtle lung patterns, pulmonary metastasis where thoracic radiographs were unremarkable, and even a large brain tumour in a polydipsic Boxer dog. We are starting to establish our outpatient service and are already receiving outpatient referrals which benefits all the local practices as their clients now do not need to travel such great distances for advanced imaging.”
BCF supply a comprehensive range of CT and MRI systems to suit a range of needs for small animal practice. We also supply a full range of ultrasound, X-ray and PACS products, CPD training courses, online clinical resources and full service support.
