Pioneers Memorial Healthcare District purchased an additional new radiology device that will provide better diagnoses and treat many forms of cancer, gastrointestinal and genitourinary disorders, and other traumatic injuries for Imperial Valley families.
The newly purchased TOSHIBA Aquilion 64 CT SYSTEM with the VeloCT console will improve image quality without risking patients and emits 40 percent less radiation than its previous version.
Pioneers Memorial also welcomed Dr. George Rapp, a native of the Imperial Valley. Dr. Rapp returns from the University of Southern California, where he recently completed a Fellowship in Vascular and Interventional Radiology. “I was born and raised in the Imperial Valley, I was born in El Centro. And I’m returning just to be able to provide a service to the community, something that has been a goal of mine since I went into medicine. So I’m very happy to be back to help take care of the people of the valley,” added Rapp.
