UPDATE ON OLD CT SCANNER

As our old CT scanner reaches the end of its time with us I thought that I should share with you that it has done over 45,000 scans since November 2008 when we started using it. The League of Friends should be justifiably proud of what its fund-raising enables us to do.

Best wishes,
