Patients requiring ultrasound scans are now benefitting from improved diagnosis at Pilgrim Hospital, Boston, thanks to the introduction of two new scanners. The Toshiba Aplio MX ultrasound scanners, costing £61,000 each, provide superior image quality and significantly enhance the service provided, replacing older equipment. They are being used for a wide range of examinations, including abdominal scans, musculoskeletal and gynaecological scans. Radiology services manager, Nigel Allen, said: "The technology is very impressive and increases confidence in diagnosis. We are extremely happy with the performance of these machines and are pleased to be offering such a high standard of ultrasound scanning here in Boston."
