MRI scanner in Children’s Hospital will save lives

8 September, 2015 - by Maeve McLaughlin

Sinn Féin MLA Maeve McLaughlin has said the installation of the children’s MRI scanner at the Royal Belfast hospital for Sick Children will undoubtedly save lives.

 The Chairperson of the Health Committee said,

 “Today we will see the installation of the children’s MRI scanner after many years of campaigning and I welcome that.

 “I would like to pay tribute to the people who have campaigned and raised money to see this project come to fruition.

 “The scanner will now be operational in two months and given this is the most up-to-date technology it will help diagnose disease earlier and therefore give patients a better chance of recovery.” ENDS/CRÍOCH
