Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust was among the first in the country to take delivery of a GE Optima MR450W MRI scanner.


Equipped with the latest software package, the GE system is based at Castle Hill Hospital, which already has a 1.5T scanner installed.  The suite was originally built for two scanners and, says GE, this new scanner is a welcome addition.
