HOPE FOR PATIENTS AS MODERN CT SCAN IS INSTALLED AT BCRH

County radiologist Dr Namudala Emukule

There is light at the end of the tunnel for patients following the installation of the state-of-the-art CT scan at the Busia County Referral Hospital (BCRH).

Busia Governor Sospeter Ojaamong will launch the ultra-modern scanner by the end of the month after the Radio Safety Assessment and training of staff to handle the equipment.

County Radiologist  Dr Namudala Emukule  said the  modern CT scan will diagnose not just cancer, but other complicated diseases, adding that the machine will be in handy  during emergency  surgery especially victims of road accidents.

“The CT scan has the capacity to share images both locally and without the patients suffering from non-communicable diseases travelling there,” he said.

Dr Namudala said the modern machine will also help curb referrals to other counties including Bungoma, Kakamega, Kisumu and Eldoret, which have been common phenomenon.

He said referrals have been a financial burden to county residents. The commissioning of the new modern machine will now enable them access such services at more affordable prices.
