Spire Washington opens new MRI unit

January 2012

In an exciting start to 2012 for Spire Washington Hospital the radiology department has taken delivery of a brand new Siemens state-of-the-art MRI scanner.

Spire Washington Hospital has been offering a mobile MRI service that operated from a specialised lorry for a number of years, but patient demand has led to a permanent MRI being installed, giving patients seven days a week access to a scanner.

Mark Pendleton has joined Spire Washington Hospital as the Imaging Services Manager, where he will be responsible for full range of services offered by the radiology department, including the commissioning and implementation of the MRI scanner.

He says: “We are looking forward to being able to offer a much improved experience for out patients as our new scanner has been installed in a purpose built facility.  Having an additional MRI scanner in the region will benefit so many patients.”
