GMSH-16 gets digital X-ray machine

Adviser to the UT Administrator Vijay Dev, along with Anurag Agarwal, Home Secretary-cum Secretary-Health, on Friday inaugurated the digital X-ray machines installed at GMSH-16, Chandigarh.

According to a press release, Vijay Dev appreciated the efforts of the Health Department of Chandigarh Administration in ensuring that all the government hospitals are well equipped with latest facilities to ensure that the citizens of the city face no hardships.

Notably, digital X-ray machines use sensors instead of traditional photographic film. Advantages include time efficiency through bypassing chemical processing and the ability to digitally transfer and enhance images. Also, less radiation can be used to produce an image of similar contrast to conventional radiography.
