Logistics: A Neuroradiological Service. The Cost-Effectiveness of an EMI Brain Scanner

  • J. L. G. Thomson
Conference paper


An EMI Brain Scanner has been fully operational at Frenchay Hospital since June 1st, 1974. An attempt is made to assess the cost-effectiveness of the machine during the first 2 years of use, by balancing the estimated cost of the machine and its operation, in relation to the amount of work done, against the savings made in the same period. Some assumptions have to be made, but it is considered that these are if anything on the conservative side for the purposes of the paper.
