The Archbishop of Kampala Archdiocese Cyprian Lwanga has unveiled an ultra-modern scan at St. Francis hospital Nsambya in Kampala.
Lwanga said he thanks God that they have achieved the dream of getting the first modern scan in the country. He said this machines will save Ugandans who have been travelling abroad to get the same services.
He appealed to the health workers to remain with the spirit of working together so that more equipment can be got.
The Medical director of the hospital, Martin Nsubuga said they have been receiving about 2000 patients annually seeking screening services. With this number growing, the hospital administration decided to inject sh2b into a project to get the new Computerised scan.
He added that with the new scan you can be able to observe the internal parts of the patient during surgery including the bones. It also has less radiactiving effects on the patients.
