SCIENCE was brought to life for an A-Level class as they took a tour of the Alexandra Hospital’s MRI department.

Physics students from NEW College got the chance to see the £1.2 million scanner at the Woodrow Drive hospital as part of their module on x-ray, MRI and ultrasound scans.

Lecturer Ann Crompton said: “We’re really grateful to the Alexandra Hospital for supporting our students. Seeing the equipment and demonstrations really brought our lesson to life.”

Superintendent radiographer John Uren added: “Our MRI patient sessions are always fully booked, so it was tough to find time for these visits but really important for the class.

“It was a pleasure to welcome local students into the hospital and show them what we do. I hope everyone enjoyed their time in the department, and that one or two were inspired to pursue a career in radiology in the future.”
