Based in the grounds of Mount Vernon Hospital, Northwood, the independent medical charity has carried out almost 200,000 scans to detect cancer and other serious diseases in its quarter of a century of existence.
Dr Paul Strickland (pictured) who campaigned to open the centre, was in attendance at the celebrations last Tuesday afternoon.
Margaret Sullivan, chief executive of the Paul Strickland Scanner Centre, said: "We are grateful to all of our donors, supporters and volunteers from the local community who have helped us for the past 25 years.
"Their support enables us to provide new equipment and undertake research into new techniques."
