New fully equipped CT-Scan room in Lakeshore Hospital


 Today, the Lakeshore General Hospital Foundation and the Lakeshore General Hospital, a facility of the CIUSSS de l’Ouest-de-l’Île-de-Montreal (Montreal West-Island IUHSSC), announced the opening of the brand new, fully equipped CT-Scan room. Thanks to the generosity of donors, the new CT-scan is equipped with innovative elements to improve the quality of care offered to patients. Centrally located in the hospital, the new facility is easily accessible for all patients and can perform up to 75 tests per day.

This morning, in front of elected local officials, major donors, corporate partners and hospital staff, Ms. Heather Holmes, Managing Director of the Foundation welcomed guests and introduced Yvan Carbonneau, Director of the Executive Office of the CIUSSS de l’Ouest-de-l’Île-de-Montreal, who highlighted the benefits of this new room for the West Island population. He was followed by Dr. Fadi Aris, Head of Medical Imaging of the CIUSSS de l’Ouest-de-l’Île-de-Montreal, who presented the new equipment. Dr. Aris also explained how the Foundation’s contribution enhances the quality of the service offered at the Lakeshore General Hospital with the purchase of: 

• An Advanced Detector for the CT-Scan, which improves the image resolution so much that radiation doses can be reduced and sensitive body parts can be protected. The high quality images this detector provides is a paramount advantage when monitoring the effectiveness of treatments of our oncology patients. 

• A virtual skylight to make the room more welcoming and less intimidating. While lying down to receive their diagnostic tests, patients can now benefit from a stress-reducing view of the sky. It increases the comfort level, which is key for a successful scan. 

The New CT is the most advanced in its class. Thanks to quality of the images, our patients benefit from a faster diagnosis. It also enables us to perform tests and procedures that we could not do on-site before. For example, we can now use low-dose radiation for early detection tests for lung cancer. In short, the quality of the image is so much better that we can perform the same tests but with a reduced dose. This is great news for our patients explained Dr. Aris.
