A Hitachi multislice X-ray computed tomograph was purchased for the Gubkinsky central district hospital, which provides minimal radiation exposure to the patient and has a high speed of operation and quality of the diagnostic image.

An 80-slice Canon computer tomograph was installed in the Stary Oskol district hospital of St. Luke of Crimea. It possesses a high research accuracy and allows obtaining a high-quality three-dimensional image of the desired organ with different exposures. Thanks to advanced imaging technologies and high performance of the new equipment, it became possible not only to accurately determine the location, length and nature of foci of diseases, but also to reduce the duration of the examination.
