Here at Royal Brompton and Harefield Hospitals Charity, we are working to provide Royal Brompton and Harefield hospitals with the latest equipment to treat people with heart and lung conditions. 

Right now, we are raising funds to purchase a brand new gamma camera to help keep the hospitals at the leading edge of patient care.

What is a gamma camera?

Nuclear medicine imaging uses a tracer inside the body to see how various organs, bones and tissues are functioning. Images of the patients are produced using a gamma camera and used to diagnose and evaluate treatment of a variety of diseases. Due to this latest technology, the camera offers the potential to identify conditions with the highest accuracy and at an earlier stage than other imaging methods can, such as X-rays or an ultrasound.

Royal Brompton Hospital’s Nuclear Medicine Department is a centre of excellence and as a result, receives referrals from across the country. The Charity is fundraising for a new gamma camera that will deliver high quality, faster, 3D diagnostic scans for children and adults. It will result in improved patient outcomes, increased patient comfort and the advanced technology will allow for new opportunities in research. 

Can you help us reach our goal?

We have only £22,200 left to raise to reach our goal of £250,000 towards the purchase of a new camera. Please donate and help transform the lives of thousands of patients.
