The Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in Stanmore, Middlesex, has invested in a Philips Ingenia 3T MRI scanner, which joins an existing MRI system to meet the substantial increase in demand experienced over the last few years.

The second static scanner allows all patients to be managed within the trust MRI facilities rather than having to use a mobile MRI service.

Acting scanning superintendent Debbie Fox says, “After extensive research, the Philips system was felt to provide the best solution for the departmental needs.  In particular, we like the wide bore which has made the examination much more pleasant for the patient, and we also appreciate the ability to scan more body parts with the patient positioned feet first.”
