Harrogate and District NHS Foundation Trust's Radiology Department have been able to install a new Single-Photon Emission Computed Tomography CT scanner (SPECT CT) in 2018. The equipment was provided following a successful fundraising appeal by Harrogate Hospital and Community Charity, which allowed replacement nuclear medicine imaging equipment as well as radiopharmacy isolator and associated equipment.

The new state of the art scanner allows Cardiologists to look at exercise and resting heart scans for heart muscle damage. The equipment will help Orthopaedic Surgeons decide if joint replacement giving pain to a patient could be due to infection or loosening of their prosthesis. It also allows us to pinpoint areas of the bony skeleton where there may be the development of secondary malignant growths.

Come along to the Medicine for Members' lecture to find out more about the Radiology Department and what the future may bring.
