New CT Scanner at Spire Parkway Hospital

July 26, 2010

A new state of the art multislice Toshiba CT scanner has been installed at Spire Parkway Hospital in Solihull. The 64 slice scanner was officially opened by Digby, Lord Jones of Birmingham on July 1st and replaces a visiting mobile scanner. The new scanner allows rapid CT scanning with huge capabilities to produce complex 3D images and to offer a wide range of scans including cardiac CT angiography.

Lord Jones, former Director General of the CBI and Minister of State for UK Trade & Investment, who cut the ribbon to officially launch the scanner, said: “It is wonderful that Spire Parkway has invested for patients in this area to provide something that is so important to provide quick diagnosis. Not knowing can be stressful and a quick result removes the worry, whether it is good or bad news.”
