  • a multi-detector scanner, portable ultrasound machine and dual-detector radiography suite with ceiling-mounted patient lift at Health Sciences Centre;
  • a CT scanner and C-arm at Concordia Hospital;
  • a CT scanner at Misericordia Health Centre;
  • a gamma camera at Brandon Regional Health Centre;
  • conventional radiographic systems in Glenboro, Flin Flon and Minnedosa;
  • a mass spectrometer and portable ultrasound scanner at St. Boniface General Hospital;
  • radiography suites in Eriksdale and Neepawa;
  • new computed radiography equipment which enhances the X-ray machines in Dauphin and Swan River;
  • an ultrasound scanner at Victoria General Hospital; and
  • a high-resolution digital ultrasound system at St. Boniface Cancer Care.

Health Minister Erin Selby made the announcement Wednesday.
