New Chest X-ray Machine in Use in Nain (Audio)

A Chest X-ray machine to screen for tuberculosis is now operational in Nain, NL.

Antoinette Cabot is a Director with Labrador-Grenfell Health, and she oversees the Tuberculosis program.

Cabot says that the Chest X-ray machine arrived in Nain on Friday, April 6th, 2018.

It was first put to use last Tuesday, April 10th.

As of Friday April 13th, there were 65 x-rays completed and transferred to Eastern Health to the radiology department in St. John’s, NL.

Cabot adds that she would like to thank their partners and acknowledge them, because getting the x-ray machine to Nain and having it operational and the radiologist be able to read images in St. John’s was not an easy task.
