Santa Clara, Cuba - November 2006 - A new Siemens CAT scanner installed scarcely six months ago in the "Arnaldo Milián Castro" Provincial Hospital here is out of order "until further notice" according to Dr. Ismelys Iglesias.
The equipment, one of only five in Cuba, is under guarantee and will be checked by the manufacturer, said sources at the Hospital.
The outage is seriously impacting patients, who must travel the 30 miles to Sagua la Grande to use much older technology.
