Upgrade of X-Ray Rooms
X-RAY UPGRADE COST: $200,000
FLUOROSCOPY TABLE COST: $40,000
The current X-Ray machines were purchased in 2005 and are in impeccable condition. They are currently running on an analogue system.
The proposed upgrades will transition the machines to fully digital units. Digital units will reduce radiation dosage up to 80% and on average by 50%, thus reducing the risk to patients and staff of developing cancers caused by radiation. Digital technology will provide clearer images which will assist in diagnoses and treatment. They also allow for imaging perfection which shows details more clearly, and allows manipulation of the image to get the best image possible for the physicians.
The current fluoroscopy table is a static table that is not accessible to all.
The proposed replacement will be an elevating table to moves up and down to allow for easy access for children and individuals with limited mobility.
