Debre Berhan University Acquires CT-Scan Machine at Hakim Gizaw Hospital


Debre Berhan University has acquired a state-of-the-art Computed Tomography (CT) Scan machine (128 slice CT scan) at its Hakim Gizaw Hospital. This machine provides detailed images of any part of the body, including bones, muscles, and fat, organs, and blood vessels.

Dr. Tewodros Kifleyohanes, Chief Executive Director of Asrat Woldeyes Health Science Campus, emphasized the significance of the CT-Scan machine for the community in North Shewa and surrounding areas. DBU Hakim Gizaw Hospital serves a vast catchment area, including North Shoa, Amhara region, and parts of Afar, and Oromia regions. The deployment of the CT-Scan machine will bring this essential service closer to the community, eliminating the need for patients to travel to Addis Ababa for such scans. When the CT-Scan is successfully deployed, it will significantly improve the quality of service in the hospital by enabling faster and more accurate diagnoses.

 Dr. Nigus Tadesse, President of Debre Berhan University, highlighted the impact of the CT-Scan machine on the hospital's services. It will significantly reduce the time and cost for patients, while also enhancing the hospital's ability to save lives. The university community is delighted to have acquired this advanced technology after overcoming various challenges.

 The acquisition of the CT-Scan machine is a major investment by Debre Berhan University in the health and well-being of the community. The hospital's commitment to providing the latest medical technology and excellent patient care will make it the best alternative for medical services in the surrounding community.
