Doppler ultra sound unit installed at District Hospital Ramban for conducting Sonography of the patients has lost its significance as no Radiologist and technician have been posted to run the machine.
Locals said the unit was installed with great fan fare some years ago now they rue this backward and hilly district is being ignored by the health department as no Radiologist or technician has been posted to run the ultra sound machines posted in the premier district hospital.
Sources said that Doppler ultra sound machine of the hospital is of no use for the patients.
Locals said the district hospital sans facilities of modern healthcare poor people of the area are thus forced to get the radio diagnosis test from private ultra sound clinics located at various places in the district which add extra financial burden to the people looking for medical treatment.
Highlighting their miseries they have appealed Chief Minister and Health minister of state to personally intervene into the matter and get the issue resolved so that sufferings of Ramban people are mitigated.
