Two new state-of-the art CT Scanners have been unveiled at The Mercy Hospital.

The new C-T imaging Suite was officially opened yesterday afternoon by Minister Simon Coveney.

The advanced scanners will enable the diagnosis of a wide range of diseases, and allow the staff at the Radiology Department to better monitor the progress of patients who are undergoing certain treatments.

The suite was jointly funded by the H-S-E, Mercy Hospital, and The Mercy Hospital Foundation

The Foundation raised 1 million euro in the last three years for the equipment.

Mercy Hospital Foundation CEO is Micheál Sheridan. He explained the benefits of the new equipment to TheCork.ie
