A state-of-the-art CT scanner that has revolutionised non-invasive diagnosis of tumours, lung and heart diseases and blood flow problems has just been unveiled at BMI The Chiltern Hospital.
The 128 slice Toshiba Aquillion CT scanner will allow the Great Missenden hospital’s Diagnostic Imaging Department to carry out a comprehensive range of established and new procedures. It will also perform invasive procedures such as CT-guided biopsies and joint injections.
BMI Chiltern’s Diagnostic Imaging Manager Amelia Timmis said: “This is a flagship scanner that puts The Chiltern at the cutting edge of CT imaging. In the short time it has been here it has already allowed us to do procedures that would not previously have been possible. It really does mean we can further improve the standard of care we can offer our patients.”
