For a number of years, we have been working towards obtaining a ct scanner in manali. The nearest CT scanner is in Kullu, one hour away by road. This journey can be a life threatening one for a patient who is seriously injured. As a result, we have often had to perform exploratory burr holes in patients who had sustained severe head injuries to establish the site of the collection of blood. Further, we have not been able to send our critically injured patients for a ct scan. On an elective basis too, we have always had to refer outpatients for a ct scan to Kullu.
We need a sum of fifty lacs (Ninety four thousand three hundred US $) to allow us to purchase a refurbished ct scan with a digital cr system. Obtaining these together is advantageous since the machines use similar imaging cameras.
We have collected a sum of thirty five lacs so far, with the help of donors and by saving money.
We hope to install this machine by April of 2013.
We invite any further help to allow us to make this dream a reality.
Please contact Dr. Philip Alexander on firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to help with this project.
Donations can be made to us directly or through charities in the United States or the United Kingdom which are registered in the respective countries.
