The X Ray machine at Kagando has done sterling work for many years but is now reaching the end of its life. As you can imagine, without access to X rays diagnosis and management of patients, particularly with bone injuries or chest problems, becomes much more difficult. In addition it is increasingly hard to source the films used by traditional X ray machines as digital machines are increasingly used and films become obsolete.

We are researching various options for installing digital technology whilst being very much aware that is essential that any machinery we purchase can be maintained and serviced locally in Uganda without needing expensive expertise and parts from elsewhere.

It is likely that the cost will be around £60 – 80,000. As soon as we have more precise details and costing we will be looking for donations specifically for this project.
