Alliance Medical, reputedly Europe's largest private provider of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) services, has announced that a unit installed in May 1998 at the King Edward VII hospital in Midhurst, East Sussex, has performed 10,000 scans. The hospital uses the equipment primarily for assessing back and joint problems. The Banbury, Oxfordshire, UK-based company operates MRI services for 130 healthcare providers in 11 European countries. In the UK, it operates scanners at 17 hospitals, as well as a fleet of 26 mobile units. The company is preparing to open what promises to be Europe's largest single imaging facility, in London, in early 2003, it has told Clinica.
