Said hospital spokesman Paul Bryden: “We were delighted when Dame Janet accepted our invitation to open the suite as she has a long and distinguished association with the technology.”
Radiology general manager Lyn McKay, commented: “The staff are delighted with the first week’s imaging and are looking at refining their working practices, using this advanced technology, which has opened up new and innovative ways of working.”
