£13m heart research centre opens in Oxford

Early treatment of heart attacks and strokes will improved with the opening of a £13m research centre in Oxford.

The Oxford Acute Vascular Imaging Centre (AVIC) at the John Radcliffe Hospital uses the latest imaging and diagnostic technology on patients.

Treatment aims to be more specific and targeted for patients in the critical first 24 hours after a heart attack or stroke.

Doctors believe the set-up is internationally unique.
