Hospitals get up to speed

Have your say

TWO pioneering pieces of equipment are to be brought into use at hospitals in the Lothians.

St John’s Hospital in Livingston will receive a new CT scanner, which produces more detailed scans, including 3D reconstructions, and reduces the radiation dose for patients.

The Western General is to get a new bi-plane interventional neuroradiology suite which will provide more sophisticated treatments for patients with neurovascular disease.
