Beacon Hospital, Dublin, has announced that it now has the most technologically advanced diagnostic imaging and scanning equipment in Ireland, following an upgrade of its radiology facilities. The new equipment includes next generation MRI, CT, Ultrasound and X-ray equipment.
Radiology equipment is commonly used in the diagnosis and treatment of major diseases such as cancer and coronary artery disease. This upgrade forms part of a €70 million investment programme in the hospital over a 5-year period. Over the next two years, over €30 million will be invested to enhance services, equipment and facilities at the hospital as part of this investment.
The new equipment will produce higher resolution scans, helping clinicians at Beacon Hospital to diagnose and treat patients in the most effective manner. Patients will also be exposed to less radiation, be treated much faster and have a more comfortable experience overall.
