The First Computed Tomography (CT) Patient

Not only is Hospital Diospi Suyana’s CT machine ready, but it has now also been inaugurated. Yesterday afternoon the first patient slid into the long-awaited equipment.

As is clearly demonstrated in the last photo, this first examination drew a large crowd from among the hospital’s employees! Our Radiologist, Dr Renate Engisch and X-ray Technologist Petra Hoefer competently perform the examination.

The CT machine was donated by the Siemens company (the first donation ever to be made by Siemens to a Latin American country).
