The Tynan-Eyre Diagnostic Centre at the Alfred Hospital
This unit houses the hospital’s Magnetic Resonance Imaging system. Unlike other diagnostic processes, MRI provides doctors with more accurate images capable of detecting tumours as small as a pin head. Funding by the Blue Ribbon Foundation has enabled the hospital to purchase enhancements to the MRI to aid surgeons with pre-surgical computer imaging, simulations and the accurate diagnosis of multiple sclerosis.
The Tynan-Eyre Diagnostic Unit at the Alfred was dedicated as a Police Memorial in memory of Constables Steven Tynan & Damian Eyre who were murdered at Walshe Street, South Yarra on October 12th, 1988. It was the first hospital memorial to be commissioned by the Victoria Police Blue Ribbon Foundation.
