The Daisy Appeal, a charity that aims to improve treatment and research opportunities in cancer and heart disease for people in the Hull and East Yorkshire region, has helped to secure funds for the purchase of a Biograph mCT from Siemens Healthcare.
“Thanks to invigorated fund-raising in the area we are now in a position to sign a contract with Siemens Healthcare and begin the exciting steps in taking delivery of the Biograph mCT system for go-live in early 2013,” said Nick Stafford, founder and chairman of the trustees at the Daisy Appeal.
“Once the system is operational, we aim to improve research and development in oncology in the first instance and eventually extend this to cardiac and neurology research.”
