AUP Inaugurates New X-ray and Ultrasound Machines for the Health Service Department
The Health Service Department acquired and inaugurated new X-ray and ultrasound machines on June 27, 2023.
Taking part in the ribbon cutting were Dr. Prudencio Sta. Lucia, AUP Health Service medical director; Dr. Arceli Rosario, AUP president; Dr. Robert Borromeo, vice president for finance; and Dr. Julio Amurao, vice president for student services.
Dr. George Abarro, AUP Health Service radiologist, explained that the newly-acquired Shimadzu direct radiology filmless X-ray and ultrasound machines “will help doctors manage and correlate with other ancillary procedures [which] would be a great adjunct with the initial diagnosis for proper management and treatment of patients.” He added that “this technology will hasten the interpretation of X-ray images and through teleradiology, results will be presented faster.”
These two machines are part of realizing the University’s “dream of [having] a teaching hospital.” As part of its mission to provide whole-person care and healing, “this purchase is in line with the dream,” Dr. Rosario pointed out.
