Digital x-ray suite & Portable Unit

NSHN began replacing all of the Computed Radiography (CR) X-ray units at each site in 2017.

The Richards Landing - Matthews site recieved a Portable Digital X-ray in 2017-18; the Thessalon site recieved a Digital X-ray Suite in 2018-19; the Blind River site requires a Digital X-ray Suite and Portable unit in 2019-20.

Digital x-ray provides fast, high quality images. These images can be viewed in seconds on a screen, instead of minutes after processing.  Radiation doses are lower. Images are transferred by wi-fi to Radiologists in Sudbury.

The estimated cost is minimum $320,000
