Purchase of an MRI Coil for head trauma  

PP Peter Coote, PP Angelo Raveane and President Sue recently attended a 'Thank You Morning Tea' at Royal North Shore Hospital (RNSH) Imaging Unit.   The Rotary Club of Crows Nest contributed $3,000.00 towards the purchase of this vital piece of equipment.  "We were intrigued to see what the MRI coil looked like and we listened to the talk given by the representative from Phillips, the manufacturer, as to the workings and the enhanced imaging this coil provides. We learnt that this new machine has increased the imaging capabilities twofold", advised President Sue!

The RNSH Pink Ladies Team together with five local Rotary Clubs collaborated and a District Grant was approved to help fund the purchase of the MRI coil.
