UK MOD receives mobile CT Scanner
The UK Ministry of Defence (MOD) has received its first truly deployable CT Scanner, which was handed over by Marshall Land Systems. Marshall Land Systems made the announcement in a 30 January 2012 company statement.
The Philips Brilliance 64 CT Scanner has been integrated into a Marshall Double Expandable Matrix Shelter by Marshall Land Systems.
The equipment has been designed to survive the rigours of being deployed in operational theatre; and will be used to ‘materially improve the chances of survival of members of the UK and its allies armed forces, and the civilians they protect, should they be unfortunate enough to suffer major blunt trauma injury’.
