A bladder scanner has been donated to the QEQM hospital for quicker diagnosis of prostate cancer.
PCSA Kent presented the equipment to staff at the urology outpatients department in Margate last Tuesday.
Graham Edwards, founder of prostate cancer charity PCSA Kent, said the Verathon bladder scanner, which cost £7,525, is just one of many the organisation has donated to hospitals across the county in the last 12 years.
Mr Edwards, from Deal, said: “We have raised more than £300,000 to pay for the equipment with help from Masonic Lodges, Rotary and Lions clubs.
“We’re here to support men with prostate cancer and their families and to raise awareness.
“By raising the profile and providing the equipment, we will have saved lives and continue to do so.”
