Bill Wright Provides Update on SIL Clinic, Ukarumpa, PNG

I have been corresponding with Dr. Carl Luther at the SIL Clinic at Ukarumpa for nearly a year. Power quality issues prevented the x-ray unit from proper operation. They tried many things to improve the situation but failed to make any progress. I suggested a new “stored energy” x-ray unit and a digital x-ray scanner to fix the problem. We installed the new x-ray control and scanner. Both units can run off of a simple 3000 watt UPS. We actually were able to take x-rays and process them without PNG Power being available. Training the national and missionary staff the machines became a high priority. I spent nearly a day with the national staff because the system was so new for them. One of the nurses stopped me in the hall a day later and thanked me for taking so much time to show them the proper operation of the equipment. GOOD STUFF! The resulting x-rays from the scanner were stunning!
