New ultrasound scanners in town

PATIENTS needing ultrasound scans are now benefitting from improved diagnosis at Pilgrim Hospital after the introduction of two new ultrasound scanners.

The Toshiba Aplio MX ultrasound scanners, costing £61,000 each, provide excellent image quality and significantly enhance the service provided, replacing older equipment.

The scanners are being used for a wide range of examinations, which include abdominal, musculoskeletal and gynaecological scans.

Radiology services manager Nigel Allen said: “The technology increases confidence in diagnosis and we’re pleased to be offering such a high standard of ultrasound scanning in Boston.”
