Northwestern Health Sciences University received donations of imaging equipment valued at more than $75,000.
Northwestern recently converted from plain film imaging to digital technology for x-rays. The new technology offers the best possible imaging capabilities for patients in Northwestern’s clinics, ultimately resulting in better care.
The upgrade was made possible through the university’s relationship with Lake Superior X-Ray, the company that supplies and maintains the radiology equipment at Northwestern. Lake Superior X-Ray donated one new x-ray unit for the Wolfe-Harris Center for Clinical Studies. They also negotiated with state-of-the-art imaging company Fujifilm Global to donate one digital imaging unit, and provide a significant discount on two additional digital imaging units.
“As an educational institution, we strive to offer the best care for our patients, and the best education for our students,” says Mark Zeigler, DC, president of Northwestern Health Sciences University. “Digital imaging is the future in radiology. Combined with our partnership with the Center for Diagnostic Imaging (CDI) the transition was inevitable. We’re grateful for the partnership and generosity of Lake Superior X-ray and Fujifilm in helping to make this an affordable endeavor.”
