EASTBOURNE District General Hospital has taken possession of a new CT scanner.

Dr Neil Barlow, consultant radiologist said: “The new CT scanner is a lot quicker and more advanced than the scanner it has replaced, providing detailed images at a much lower radiation dose to the patient.”

Harry Walmsley chairman of the Friends of Eastbourne Hospital said: “This advanced CT scanner will benefit many local patients in the diagnosis of their disease.”

A CT scan uses X-rays and a computer to create detailed images of the inside of the body.
