We are excited to launch our new Imagine This… appeal for a high-tech scanner for a new Interventional Radiology Suite being created at Watford General. The ‘super scanner’ will allow West Hertfordshire Hospitals NHS Trust to expand the range and complexity of pinhole surgery currently offered to patients.
‘For colleagues unfamiliar with our work, interventional radiology (IR) is a form of image-guided surgery which enables us to carry out minimally invasive pinhole surgery. IR uses real-time and hi-tech CT, MRI and X-ray images to guide surgical equipment into parts of the body that are otherwise only reached by open surgery. With the new scanner we’ll be able to conduct more complex operations, so more people can be treated more quickly and closer to home.’Dr Muhammad Zamir, Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology Consultant
West Hertfordshire Hospitals NHS Trust
The new Interventional Radiology Suite will consist of the treatment room, anaesthetic room and recovery areas with five beds, meaning patients can be welcomed, treated and recuperate all in one space, ensuring privacy and dignity throughout.
