Other good news in Radiology is that a new state-of-the-art 4-slice CT scanner became operational this month following all its tests and calibration. The new scanner replaces an 11 year old scanner.
The Trust has three scanners in total and, on average, we perform CT scans on 75 patients each day. We dedicate one scanner to all emergency and in-patient work, and the new high performing scanner will deliver a more efficient workflow, and this will ensure we reach national cancer, stroke and trauma imaging targets at the same time as delivering a much lower radiation dose to patients.
