The MRI service is now in full swing in the Radiology unit with shortened waiting times and fewer journeys for local patients. Additionally, other Trusts can utilise the service with the same benefits for their patients and provide valuable revenues for our hospital. We have recently further enhanced the department with the financing of state of the art Fluoroscopy equipment which will largely replace the need for Barium meals and enemas. The equipment’s C arm allows the camera to revolve around the patient rather than having to turn the patient to obtain the required view.

In 2012 we agreed to purchase a retinal scanner for the ophthalmic service. The Cirrus Optical Coherence Tomographer (OCT) is particularly beneficial in diagnosis of early Glaucoma and Age related Macular Degeneration (AMD). This new equipment, together with the Yag laser funded in 2010, is providing a comprehensive Ophthalmic service avoiding the need for patients in the New Forest having to travel for their treatment.
