Spotlight events are an opportunity to hear about the work going on in the hospital and to learn about the projects that that our charity supporters’ generosity helps to make possible.
Leading scientists and clinicians provide a fascinating insight into their own area of work and the ongoing advances being made in treatment due to research here at The Christie.
Spotlight events are a chance to celebrate the impact that you, our supporters, have on patients every day. They are free to attend and open to anyone who would like to hear more about our work.
Spotlight on the redevelopment of the radiology and CT scanner facility.
- Wednesday 7th November 2pm-3.30pm
Our next Spotlight event will focus on the redevelopment of the radiology and CT scanner facility. At the event you will hear consultant radiologist Dr Damian Mullan talk about the planned changes to the radiology department, the installation of a four dimensional CT scanner and the difference it will make to our patients.
The radiology department was originally opened in the 1980s and with changes to technology and the number of patients being treated, the department is now in need of transformation. The redevelopment will include the installation of a cutting edge four dimensional CT scanner which is one of only a few in the country. The scanner takes detailed real time images of the area to be treated so procedures can be done at the same time as the scan, reducing the need for more invasive open surgery. The redevelopment will mean better facilities for our patients with improved waiting and changing areas. It will also increase the size of the existing scanning rooms giving patients improved accessibility and provide space for our new 4D CT scanner.
We are currently fundraising for this important new project and the Spotlight events are a chance to celebrate the impact that you, our supporters, have on patients every day. They are free to attend and open to anyone who would like to hear more about our work.
The event will take place in the auditorium at the Education Centre (department 17), The Christie, Wilmslow Road, Manchester, M20 4BX. Registration will be available 30 minutes prior to the event.
