Truly a “Giving Tuesday” November 30th in Revelstoke as fundraising surpasses target and hits $58,220
Carestream DRX-1 System
The Health Foundation is working to raise $53,221 to help purchase an upgrade for the X-ray machine at Queen Victoria Hospital. The current technology, computed radiography (CR), is being replaced with digital radiography (DR). Although current CR uses very low doses of radiation compared to the days of the film, DR detectors are more sensitive further reducing radiation dose and providing better quality images and digital detectors produce images almost instantaneously, within 3-5 seconds and without additional processing, as compared to current detectors which take up to 60 seconds per image. X-ray technologists can spend more time with patients and less time travelling in an out of the exam room for processing.
Interior Health has provided funding to purchase one unit. The staff at the imaging department are requesting purchase of a second unit as a back-up and is to be used in conjunction with the first unit to add longevity to the units. The manufacturer has offered a significant discount to purchase the 2nd unit. However, the order must be placed before Dec 31,2021 to qualify.
