Musgrove needs a New MRI Scanner

SURE is supporting a £1 million Campaign to provide Musgrove Park Hospital with a much-needed, brand new, high specification MRI scanner.

An MRI Scanner provides high quality images for diagnoses and monitoring of treatment for patients who may have:
• Breast cancer
• Neurological conditions
• Cardiac issues
• Prostate cancer
• Tumours
• Spinal injuries and problems
• Musculoskeletal disorders

The two current MRI scanners work to full capacity seven days a week, and the Trust has to use external providers to meet demand, which means longer waiting times, extra cost and repeat scans due to poor quality.

An additional scanner will allow the hospital to continue delivering first-class healthcare to the people of Somerset and beyond, and deliver a better patient experience, additional MRI scanning capacity, faster scan times, a reduction in wait times, reduction in outsourcing costs, reduced failure rates and increased diagnostic accuracy, improved clinical outcomes, increased availability to partake in research studies, such as the recent study on prostate cancer diagnosis.

SURE is supporting this campaign as recent analysis has shown that over 25% of MRI use is either for cancer diagnosis, treatment planning or follow up. SURE has already pledged the first £100,000 to the new MRI, and are seeking to raise a further £150,000 towards the £1M campaign.
