County Cavan and Monaghan in Ireland have just opened a new DEXA service located in Monaghan Hospital.
Cavan & Monaghan Hospital currently provides services to the population of both counties and its catchment area extends to counties Meath, Longford and Leitrim. All acute inpatient services are based in Cavan General Hospital. Monaghan Hospital’s primary role includes the continuing care for medically discharged patients requiring inpatient step down and rehabilitation care. Both Hospital sites provide extensive outpatient, theatre and day services with a Minor Injuries Unit located on the Monaghan Hospital site.
Martina Smyton Radiography Services Manager in Monaghan Hospital and Áine McKenna lead DEXA Radiographer commented
“We are delighted to receive our new Hologic Horizon A system from Hospital Services Ltd. This system is the only DEXA system on the market with a rotating C-Arm which enables the patient to lay flat and not have to be positioned on their side for IVA examinations which was key when purchasing the system”
