Medical treatment for hundreds of people in Shetland has become easier thanks to the arrival of a CT scanner after a successful appeal.
Patients can now be scanned at Gilbert Bain Hospital
Until now about 500 patients a year have had to travel to hospital in Aberdeen for scans.
Islanders raised more than £1m for the scanner, which will mean faster diagnosis for spinal injuries, cancer and other illnesses.
The new equipment is being officially opened on Tuesday.
Patients will be scanned at Lerwick's Gilbert Bain Hospital, rather than facing a 200-mile trip to Aberdeen.
The scanner allows fast and detailed scanning of large sections of a patient's body.
