A step up for hospital

THE difficulties of radiological findings will soon be a thing of the past in Fiji.

This after the Suva Private Hospital bought its first 3D Ultra Sound machine that can make accurate diagnosis.

Hospital general manager David Qumivutia, who refused to reveal the cost of the machine, said it was an important investment that would assist in radiological findings.

"We are willing to make such investments so that more accurate diagnosis is made," Mr Qumivutia said.

Hospital specialist radiologist Doctor Jonetani Kama said the machine would help them carry out diagnosis such as screening from the head to toe.

"It will enable us to look at the liver, kidney, eyes and main blood vessels to detect very fine things that cannot be detected by the X-ray," Dr Kama said.

He said the machine would also allow them to detect abnormalities during the early term of pregnancies.

Mr Qumivutia said patients who required ultra sound services should contact their general practitioners for consultations.
