16-slice CT scanner at Pudukkottai Government Medical College

Trichy: A 16 slice full body CT scanner worth Rs. 1.48 crore installed in Pudukkottai Government Medical College and Hospital on Monday. The new addition is indeed expected to benefit the medical college and hospital as it will shorten the time span required for a full body scan, becoming crucial for timely diagnosis especially  in RTA cases

Tamil Nadu Health Minister, C Vijaya Baskar who inaugurated the scanner said the installation will save people a treatment trip to the neighbouring Trichy and Thanjavur districts.
