The machine was procured by the Italian Corporation in Uganda. The corporation also donated imaging units and two new pieces of ultrasound machines for the x-ray department.

Dr. Aceng told the hospital management to ensure that all services in the department are made free to members of the public. She said the government has allocated money to equip all referral hospitals with CT scan Machines next financial year.
