The Mayor of Luton, councillor Naseem Ayub, officially opened the MRI scanner suite at the Luton and Dunstable University Hospital.
The MRI suite transformation, consisting of a new departmental layout with installation of a third scanner, new inpatient bed bays and new outpatient seating/changing areas, is now complete.
The suite provides patients with a friendly, comfortable, calming environment and waiting times should be improved.
Simon Nicholson, Imaging Manager, said: “The addition of the 3rd scanner and redesign of the department provides our patients with state of the art diagnostic MRI and a friendly and comfortable environment.
“We are delighted that the Mayor of Luton, Councillor Naseem Ayub, was able to attend and officially open the new facility.”
