The radiotherapy department of the Royal Derby Hospital has installed an Aquilion LB CT scanner from Toshiba.  The new first-class £334 million hospital was officially opened on the former Derby City General Hospital site in July last year.


The Aquilion is a multi-slice helical CT scanner with a 90cm bore and a maximum scanning field of 70cm that generates 32 slices a second.
