First published Wednesday, February 19, 2014
The University awarded a contract for fluoroscopic equipment from Siemens Medical.
This emergency/quick purchase was required due to a situation in which immediate action was needed to prevent any disruption in University services.
A broken overhead pipe in the GI Lab caused severe water damage to fluoroscopic equipment and rendered it beyond repair as its electronic cabinet and imaging system were deemed useless. The fluoroscopic equipment is used for diagnosis and treatment of various gastrointestinal diseases including bile and pancreatic ducts such as tumors or stenosis; Double Balloon (treatment of gastrointestinal bleeding, mass, foreign body removal) and stenting (treatment of cancers) procedures. Currently, all the elective procedures have been cancelled until the equipment can be replaced. The University of Illinois Hospital & Health Sciences System has similar equipment manufactured by both GE Healthcare and Siemens Medical in the Radiology unit but, that equipment is 80%-90% fully utilized. Consequently the emergency purchase to replace this equipment is necessary for patient care.

The Hospital staff have evaluated replacement equipment on the basis of accessibility and placement within the GI Lab and have determined that the purchase of the Siemens Medical equipment is appropriate.
