The new echocardiogram has arrived! Northern B.C. residents now have faster access to hear scans! Mills Memorial Hospital can now increase scans to 10 to 12 a day with the new addition.
An echocardiogram is essentially a heart-ultrasound and is used five days a week and often for evening and weekend emergencies as well. It can be used to diagnose a heart-issue, check for possible damage after a heart attack, or to monitor heart-health for cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy.
People from Prince Rupert, Kitimat, Smithers, Haida Gwaii and all over the north will benefit from the services in Terrace since it’s the only place north of Prince George with an echocardiogram.
