Five health boards are to get £8.5M funding to buy new CT and MRI scanners.

The Princess of Wales Hospital in Bridgend, Wrexham Maelor Hospital, Ysbyty Gwynedd in Bangor and University Hospital of Wales in Cardiff will each get new CT scanners.

Newport's Royal Gwent Hospital and Glangwili Hospital in Carmarthen will get MRI scanners.

Health Minister Mark Drakeford said the investment will help reduce waiting times.

The money includes £2.5m announced by the Welsh government in 2014.
