Location

  • These revolutionary new scanners will mean our patients will be treated with advanced technology which is currently only available at a few hospitals in the country.

    — Dr Soroosh Firoozan, Consultant Cardiologist and Trustee, Scannappeal

  • Suffering from atrial fibrillation I was treated with Imaging equipment purchased by Scannappeal in the past. This helped doctors diagnose my condition quickly and provide me with the best possible care.

Situation

Improving diagnosis for 50,000 people in our catchment area who have cardiac disease each year, 75% of whom are elderly.

Solution

These scanners use a hundred times more data compared to predecessors, resulting in exceptional image quality. Live 4D capability allows for greater accuracy when analysing the heart's structure, efficiency, size, flow and function. It is invaluable in guiding medical management and determining the need for surgical intervention, and also for assessing patients who are receiving chemotherapy.
