Subject: Information on Trust MRI scanners
I am doing some research in relation to NHS imaging infrastructure and as such have a few questions on MRI scanners, in respect of which I am requesting your response under the Freedom of Information Act.
For each scanner operated anywhere by your Trust
- Software version?
- Do your scanners have fast T1 mapping capacity?
- Located in which hospital within Trust?
- Acquisition year?
- How it was financed (owned by Trust, leased or held under Managed Equipment Service (‘MES’) arrangements)?
- If MES, which provider do you use?
- What year will the equipment be replaced?
- Is maintenance done by the Trust, by the Manufacturer or by 3rd party provider?
- If 3rd party provider which provider do you use?
- What are the operational hours of the equipment?
