Dhangadhi: Neuro Trauma service including CT scan has been started at Nisarg Hospital and Research Center in Dhangadhi.
Earlier, CT scan service was available in other hospitals but neuro trauma service was not available.
The hospital has stated the neuro trauma service including a CT scan machine.
Although, the Neuro Trauma Center was set up last February, there was no CT scan machine.
The hospital was performing neuro surgery on the patient who underwent CT scan services from outside.
Even if the operation is done on the basis of CT scan done from outside, it is necessary to do a CT scan again to know the condition of the patient.
Chairman of the hospital, Tirtha Raj Pant, said that he had installed the CT scan machine after anticipating the risk of sending the patient to another hospital.
"We have started neuro-trauma services for the first time in Far-West. In a span of three months, about 48 people were operated," said Pant.
The state-of-the-art CT scan machine of American GE Company has been installed in the hospital at a cost of Rs. 35 million.
