Two Toshiba 64-slice CT scanners bought for new Derby hospital

June 2009
Synergy: Imaging & Therapy Practice;Jun2009, p21
The article reports on the move of Derby Hospitals National Health Service (NHS) Foundation Trust to purchase two Toshiba Aquilion 64-Computerized Tomography (CT) scanners for its centralised imaging services in England. The hospital's project is due for completion in May 2009, and it will be one of the largest in the East Midlands with specialist services in imaging systems. The imaging department will have three CT systems, magnetic resonance imagings (MRIs), and interventional rooms.
