Mammoth Hospital Foundation launches campaign to raise money for a new CT Scanner

text messaging

The CT, or Computed Tomography scanner, is at the core of the Emergency Room’s diagnosis tool belt. By imaging the patient’s body into thin slices, a CT allows a physician to see damage to tissue, pathology, or identify the source of unknown pain or injury quickly and accurately. The correct diagnosis may mean saving the life of the patient.

Mammoth Hospital’s current CT is near the end of its life and will be obsolete in December 2025. Acquiring the Canon Aquilion CT will greatly enhance our speed and accuracy in emergency care and provide extremely high-quality imaging, eliminating the need to travel out of Mammoth Lakes for this service.

The new CT project is expected to cost $1.2 million. The machine itself costs approximately $700,000, for which we are seeking our community’s support. A gift of any size can be instrumental in saving your own life, the life of a loved one, or a fellow community member.
