A new and advanced Ultrasound High Tech (ACUSON X300) machine has been acquired and installed in three CBC Health facilities namely: Nkwen and Bafoussam Baptist Health Centers and Etoug-Ebe Baptist Hospital Yaounde.
Abang Jacqueline Shinse, X-Ray/Ultrasound Assistant Technician at the Nkwen Baptist Health Centre has been using the equipment and attests that the equipment used in carrying out ultrasound scan uses high-frequency sound waves to make an image of a person’s internal body structures. Doctors commonly use ultrasound to study a developing fetus (unborn baby), a person’s abdominal and pelvic organs, muscles and tendons, or their heart and blood vessels. This paraphernalia is said to be advanced in that it gives details of the programs installed in it like continues wave doppler, its coloured doppler is more advanced that it gives sounds, and most important does 3D scans where images and features (Internal Organs) appear just the way they are physically.
Unlike in the past, this equipment renders ultrasound services quicker with accurate results, hence reducing time spent by clients in the ultrasound. The CBC Health Services is the first in the country in possession of this updated version of Ultrasound Machine, currently being used in Etoug-Ebe Baptist Hospital Yaounde, and Baffoussam and Nkwen Baptist Health Centers.
