This information is not currently held in the format requested as the specification of services for future community diagnostic centres (CDCs) has not yet been confirmed. Business cases for the next cohort of CDCs are being finalised and decisions on the procurement of computerised tomography, magnetic resonance imaging and X-ray scanners will be made following the outcome of this process.

Positron emission tomography machines are not used within CDCs.
