New CT scanner at Beechwood

16 June 2015

Building work has started to allow installation of a permanent CT scanner at Beechwood

CT scanning is a widely used imaging modality within human hospitals allowing more accurate diagnosis of many medical and surgical conditions.  Over the past 3 years we have used the services of a mobile CT scanner that visited once a month. Due to an increase in the number of cases we are scanning we are happy to announce the installation of a permanent CT scanner within our hospital.  This will allow us to scan both urgent and non urgent cases on a daily basis.  We are delighted to be working with Siemens during the installation of a Somatom Scope 16 slice CT scanner and predict that installation will be complete in August 2015.
