Chilliwack – The Fraser Valley Health Care Foundation accepted a gift in support of their campaign to purchase a new Radiographic Fluoroscopic unit for the Medical Imaging Department at Chilliwack General Hospital

“The cornerstone of any great city is its hospital” said Marcel Nadeau owner of the Canadian Tire Chilliwack. “We want to show our appreciation for what our hospital and especially its caring people do for our community.”

A Radiographic Fluoroscopy is used to evaluate specific areas of the body. These include the bones, bowel, muscles, heart vessels, and joints. A continuous x-ray beam is passed through the body part and sent to a video monitor so that the body part and its motion can be seen in detail.
