What is the current state of MR equipment in the NHS?

Published: 14 April 2016 Ezine

The Clinical Imaging Board is launching a survey to gain a better understanding of the current state of UK NHS magnetic resonance (MR) equipment. 

The CIB is seeking to establish current utilisation, identify whether existing equipment is fit for purpose, and understand organisations’ plans for replacement.

These plans will then be used to predict whether the current state is adequate for anticipated future increases in demand. 

The end result will be a freely available report, published by the CIB, and will follow on from the successful CT equipment survey conducted last year which elicited a 64% response from NHS organisations across the UK and Channel Islands. 

Once you open the survey, it will take you into an Excel spreadsheet. When prompted to do so, please make sure you select ‘enable macros’, otherwise the document will not open.  

Once you have completed the survey, a button within the document will allow you to attach your completed spreadsheet to an email which will be returned to Jemimah Eve at the Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine (IPEM).

Please contact Dr Martin Graves if you have any questions about the survey.
