Former Olympian helps launch new MRI equipment at Nuffield Brentwood
Former Olympian Fatima Whitbread MBE helped launch new MRI equipment at Nuffield Brentwood last week.
The new MRI scanner opened on Friday and will allow a full range of MRI examinations.
The new equipment will be able to help patients by helping to diagnose breast cancer and providing an effective way of checking how far the cancer has spread through the breast.
Fatima was joined at the event by a recovering breast cancer patient, Karen Lapslie, who both officially cut the red ribbon to formally open the new scanner.
Dawn Moat, radiology manager at Nuffield Health Brentwood Hospital, said: “We are delighted that this latest addition to our scanning services will help to benefit patients like Karen.
