Paul Strickland Scanner Centre acquired its first PET-CT scanner in 1998, after Dr Paul Strickland founded the charity in 1985 to acquire new scanning technology not available on the NHS at the time. Since then, the clinicians at the centre pride themselves as being versatile and forward thinking, providing the highest standard of PET-CT service – fully compliant with the Imaging Services Accreditation Scheme (ISAS).
