Tomography

Volume 482: debated on Tuesday 11 November 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Health pursuant to the answer of 14 January 2008, Official Report, column 1034W, on tomography, if he will break down the figures for the provision of (a) computerised tomography scanners, (b) magnetic resonance imaging scanners and (c) linear accelerators by NHS trusts in each year since 2000. (231074)

The Department does not routinely collect this data centrally. However, information supplied by the Health Protection Agency (HPA) relating to the English national health service as at September 2008 has been placed in the Library. The document shows the number of computed tomography scanners, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanners and linear accelerators (linacs.) provided to each NHS trust in the years 2000 to 2008.
