New MRI scanner to cost half a million

Thu, 07 Feb 2013

Noble’s Hospital is spending more than half a million pounds updating its MRI scanner.

The Department of Health says it’s part of a capital programme to replace or upgrade radiology equipment.

In order to minimise disruption while the work is carried out a mobile MRI scanner will be used for six weeks.

Health Minister David Anderson says it’s a considerable investment given the financial challenges facing government, but that the enhancements the upgrade will bring are vital.
