Lions of Cornwall helping towards Men's Health

 

The now most up to date Ultrasound-MRI Fusion for Targeted Diagnosis of Prostate Cancer in the region  launched by the Chestnut Appeal has arrived at Treliske Hospital in Truro. The cost of this equipment was £111,000 and really is state of the art. This device provides precise targeting and the best possible biopsy currently available. Whether for a first biopsy or as a repeat biopsy, patients have a greater peace of mind knowing that the chance of detecting significant prostate cancer is maximised whilst minimising the risk of false negative results.

 

The Lions Clubs of Callington, St Austell, Truro, Towan Blystra, Roche, Helston, Torpoint & Rame, Looe, Penzance, Fowey River, Hayle and Newquay donated a magnificent amount of £8662.00 towards the Chestnut Appeal earlier this year making the purchase of this equipment all the sooner.
