11/08/2022 New Child-friendly CT Scanner at The Grange University Hospital

The Radiology team at The Grange University Hospital have worked hard to create a child-friendly CT scanner. A computed tomography (CT) scan is a medical imaging technique that is used to gain detailed internal images of the body. To do this, the patient must go through a doughnut-shaped machine and lay very still for a few minutes. For many children, and adults, this can be an intimidating process which will often lead to the patient being sedated before entering the scanner. However, with the help of our suppliers at Canon, the Radiology team have been able to create a child-friendly CT scanner which has been covered in artwork of Ferdinand the Fox and Betty the Bunny.
