  2. £500,000 scanner opens at Poole Hospital

    A state-of-the-art scanning service is being officially opened in Dorset this afternoon.

    Poole Hospital says the static scanning service will provide detailed imaging with lower doses of radiation to make cancer diagnosis safer for patients.

    Children and inpatients can also now be scanned at the hospital for the first time.

    The hospital said the PET/CT scanner is the first of its kind in the UK.

    The scanner replaces a mobile unit which visited the hospital each Monday, Wednesday and Thursday.

    The scanner has been funded through a £500,000 donation from the Poole Hospital Cancer Treatment Trust charity.
