The second CT scan donated by Specchio dei tempi is now up and running at the Martini’s Hospital
The second CT scan donated by Specchio dei tempi is now up and running. A Canon-Toshiba Aquilon has been set in no-time at the Martini Hospital. This machine, of the value of 305.000 euros, was bought in Holland and donated by La Stampa’s readers to the local health authority of the city of Turin. “This machine is vital, as it will allow us to examine Covid patients that arrive in the ER where we had a very old model. This new equipment is a like a miracle” says Elisabetta Sardi, health director of the hospital. The sanitary technicians of the Radiology unit and all of the nurses wanted to thank the Foundation: “You have supplied us with a forefront machine that is technologically advanced and will help us in this battle that has brought us to fight in first line”.
Another CT scan has already been donated twenty days ago and it is functioning at the Amedeo di Savoia Hospital. This machine, that has been rented for three months, has been set on a truck and will remain in use of the Martini Hospital after the emergency. Also, the Martini has received 26 electrically powered bed that have arrived from Poland.
