After months of planning and renovating, the new Diagnostic Imaging equipment has been installed in Walkerton!  Interesting things to know about this machine:
  • This is a $750,000 piece of equipment that is fully digital and can do both general and fluoroscopic (moving picture) X-rays.  
  • The Walkerton Foundation has donated $500,000 toward this machine with SBGHC picking up the rest of the cost. 
  • The old machine was bought in 1998 and was not working as efficiently anymore.
  • The new machine will lower radiation doses by half and provide much clearer pictures.

Many came out to the Walkerton Foundation's event on Wednesday, June 5 to see the grand unveiling of the new machine - here is a picture.
