A Toshiba Aquilion 64-slice CT scanner installed in the A&E department at Glasgow Royal Infirmary was opened by retiring member of staff Dr Ian Swann. The A&E department is located in the new Jubilee building and will enable the hospital to deliver rapid access to critical CT scans for acutely unwell patients.
Glasgow Royal Infirmary is said to be the first site to have a CT scanner in its A&E centre. Said a hospital spokesperson: “We already have a Toshiba scanner in our main radiology department. We particularly like the new system for its ease of use and the greater flexibility it has for scanning.”
