In 2017, through a grant from the Butterfield Foundation, CAHO assisted Kibogora in purchasing a new digital X-ray system. The digital system has created an easy way to store and recover films, improving continuity of care – especially for patients with long-term orthopedic care needs. Over 800 x-rays are perfomed each month at Kibogora Hospital.
In 2019, funds donated to CAHO were used to purchase a new Ultrasound machine for the radiology department. Around 300 ultrasounds are performed each month on patients of all ages. Ultrasound is an invaluable diagnostic resource. Kibogora’s head radiology technician, Xavier Akimuhana, is highly skilled in performing and interpreting ultrasound studies of all types. He is thrilled to have such an advanced machine to use!
