We visited a teaching hospital in Poznań to unveil the most recent donation purchased with the funds raised at the 27th Grand Finale fundraiser. The state-of-the-art CT scanner is one of the devices we donated to specialised paediatric hospitals across the country. The worth of items donated to the Poznań hospital reached over PLN 10 000 000. Apart from the ultra-modern CT scanner, our charity gave modern echocardiogram machine, premium class ultrasonography machine, anaesthesiology machine, and a set of endoscopes.

It's is a great way to account for the money we raise, how conscientiously we spend cash donated by the public. It is thanks to the commitment of our volunteers, thanks to the efforts to organise the fundraiser locally we were able to set another fundraising record. We were able to set our sights on the best equipment available on the market. It's the most modern and advanced piece of equipment, one of the most advanced CT scanners in Poland, and one of three Siemens Healthineers SOMATOM Force scanners working currently in the world. This scanner gives doctors vast possibilities of precise diagnosis, which is a huge part of treating and helping children get better, says Jurek Owsiak, chairman of the board of the GOCC. 

 

 

SOMATOM Force is the most advanced CT scanner, supporting the most precise diagnosis which helps establish a successful course of therapy and tailor-made care for each patient. SOMATOM Force utilises dual-source scanning and detectors. This allows for better image quality, quicker examination and considerable reduction of radiation used to examine the patient. What is essential when it comes to CT scan in paediatric diagnosis and treatment, the test is quick, precise, and does not require patients to be sedated and requires fewer contrast media. It is likewise essential to note that designers took care to prepare an extra-wide gantry opening.

The entire CT suite is designed with the little patients in mind and evokes images of sea journey, sailing, and pirate adventures.
