Our new CT has arrived at 9 Harley Street
Harley Street was brought to a standstill on Saturday when after months in the planning we finally said goodbye to our old CT scanner and took delivery of our fantastic new shiny Toshiba CT.
The road was closed, there was more hard hats than a Crossrail building site and Dr Bristow was on hand to monitor progress. Despite the snow, traffic chaos and the extremely tight space for the crane the new machine was lowered into the lightwell at the front under the watchful and expert eye of the installations team from Toshiba.

Once clear of the crane, the scanner was slowly wheeled into position in the CT room through a hole in the wall at the front of the building created for that purpose and will now be commissioned over the next couple of weeks. At the same time, the building contractors will start to rebuild the basement which was demolished to create a route for the CT.
