To help promote the BMD service at The Christie Hospital broadcaster Sir Trevor McDonald paid a visit to the new unit.
Explained Catherine Lee: “The Christie has long been among the leaders in diagnostic imaging in the UK and DEXA complements a wide range of services from the endocrinology teams in the hospital. Demand is already apparent both from the community and from in-house referrals as this is also a useful service for our patients.”
