Spire Hospital Group has chosen Toshiba as its CT partner of choice. A new scanning suite with an Aquilon 64 slice CT scanner at Spire Cheshire Hospital was officially opened by David Mowatt, Conservative MP for Warrington South. Warrington Wolves Rugby League Club players Ryan Atkins and Michael Monaghan were also at the event.
Hospital director Andrew Eadsforth said: “The commissioning and installation of the Toshiba CT scanner has been the most straightforward build project I have ever been involved in.”
The Aquilion 64 replaced a mobile CT scanner and means that the hospital can expand its CT service, and will be able to introduce cardiac work.
