A new CT scanner is our $1 million

fund-raising focus for this year

The CT scanner at the Yorkton Regional Health Centre is now 10 years old and needs to be replaced. The manufacturer has advised that they will stop making parts for the current machine at the end of this year, and since the current machine is increasingly out of service for repair we know we will be unable to have it fixed early in 2016.

A CT scanner costs approximately $1 million, making it the most expensive piece of equipment for which The Health Foundation has had to raise funds. However, it will do tremendous good because the technology has changed so much in the last 10 years. Our current CT is a 16-slice machine and the new machine will be a 256-slice scanner.

Last year 4,300 patients used the CT scanner at the Regional Hospital and many of them used the machine several times. Every year the number of patients needing a CT scan grows. This new machine will enable an earlier diagnosis of some cancers and heart conditions. It will save lives. Read the complete story >>

For more information about the new CT scan listen to the Radiothon April 20 and 21. For two days we will be on GX94 and FOX FM raising funds to help purchase the new CT. Doctors, nurses, and other medical staff will explain why we need the new equipment. Other issues about local healthcare will also be discussed, but the focus will be on raising funds for the new CT. The Radiothon is live on the air from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. both days.
