We are raising much needed funds for a Faxitron machine for the Cancer Centre at Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Edgbaston in Birmingham
The portable Faxitron machine provides instant confirmation of a successful biopsy procedure, displaying images on a high-resolution monitor. This allows the Dr’s to save very valuable time on a diagnosis whilst in theatre. This machine is much needed by our local hospital in saving them and their patients time as now they are having to wait for the results to be sent back from another hospital trust and having this machine would give the Dr’s instant results in their own operating theatre.
The following are examples of the equipment LFBC has purchased for the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Cancer Centre in Birmingham since the charity’s formation in June 2000. Our fund-raising started with a £5,000 cooling cap and through the years has progressed to £150,000 ultra sound scanner:
