Guam - The Guam Memorial Hospital has received a new 16 slice-catscan, floroscopy diagnostic equipment and a nuclear medicine system. According to hospital administrator Joseph Verga the catscan will offer GMH a redundancy, while this is the hospital's first floroscopy equipment and nuclear medicine system.

"We will have increased diagnostic capability to better identify potential diseases and illnesses that people are in need of treatment," he explained.

Meanwhile the additional CT scan will allow for simultaneous diagnostic testing while also prolonging the life of both machines. Verga says they now need $200,000 to install the equipment. He adds that they have begun the planning and redesign of the room to accommodate the equipment followed by the training of the staff to operate. At this time no funds have yet to be identified but according to Verga both the governor and the legislature give their full support in identifying the funding.
