MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) quality concerns force UK unit shutdown

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

A UK hospital has been forced to close down its ageing magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) unit due to concerns over the quality of the images produced. As a further precautionary measure, Pembury hospital, in Kent, is to conduct a review of scans performed over the last six months. Until now, growing concerns over the performance of the "old and low specification" machine had led the hospital to redirect some patients to other local facilities, according to their scanning needs. A lack of funding has prevented the hospital from acquiring a replacement.
