An X-ray equipment worth 24.5 million HUF was donated to the Department of Paediatric Surgery in Miskolc. The Director General of BAZ County Hospital requested our help with the procurement of a C-arm X-ray image intensifier, which the hospital could not afford to purchase, due to its poor economic condition.
The Department of Paediatric Surgery in Miskolc, the one with the highest number of hospital beds in the country, is responsible for carrying out all tumour removal operations in the region. The 30-year-old, totally outdated machine, which had been used earlier, produced blurred images compromising the success of interventions while increasing radiation load to the young patients. The Foundation purchased the digital X-ray machine and handed it over to the department on 8th February.
