To the request in question, we justify that despite all the demand, we do not have mobile acquisition system images "C-arm". With this device we can do different procedures such as:
- Conducting percutaneous procedures such as biliary drainage; placement of esophageal prostheses, bile, percutaneous gastrostomy, drainage of abscess cavity, nephrostomies Percutaneous.
- Vascular procedures such as placement of a vena cava filter, diagnostic procedures, tumor embolization and etc.
- Realization of endoscopic procedures such as biliary prostheses derivation thereof, diagnostic procedures such as endoscopic retrograde cholangiography, guidewire positioning, placement of esophageal prostheses.
- Urological procedures such as placement of catheter double "J", pyelography, nephrostomies.
- Surgical procedures as Intraoperative cholangiography catheter placement porth-a-cath.
Today, some of these procedures are performed partially or our patients are moved to the II unit (250km away) due to absence of this device. We have medical experts who are able to work with this apparatus as Interventional Radiologist, therapeutic endoscopist, urologists and surgeons.

DDF contributions in grey are pending approval of the corresponding district committee.
Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
