A new medical scanning centre is coming to Tallaght.
Construction work has already began on the €3.5 million facility on Belgard Square West.
When completed, it'll offer MRI, Ultrasound and X-Ray scans to 10,000 Dubliners a year.
The company building the centre, Affidea, also say the centre will bring ten new jobs to Tallaght when it opens in May.
The centre is set to provide the highest-quality scans, particularly for patients who experience claustrophobia or those who find it difficult to tolerate the noise of older scanners.
It's expected it'll cater to people from areas such as Saggart, Rathcoole, Clondalkin, Lucan, Tallaght, Templeogue, Terenure and Rathfarnham.
Tom Finn, CEO of Affidea, said, “Affidea currently caters to Dublin patients with centres in Santry, Dundrum and Dublin City, however the Tallaght centre will ensure local patients have greater accessibility to medical scans, quickly, professionally and to the highest of standards".
