The RUH is running a two-phase fundraising campaign to improve cancer services at the RUH. Phase one will be a 12 month project to raise £650,000 to purchase the Gamma-CT Scanner; which combines a traditional Gamma camera and a CT scanner, followed by the larger phase two 3 year project which is to be launched to the public in early 2012. Cancer affects one in three people in the UK and the catchment area of the RUH is no exception. Early treatment is essential in combating the disease and a primary use of a Gamma camera is to diagnose the myriad types of cancer that can affect us. It can also be used in the detection of heart disease, bone pain and neurological disorders.
