Jennifer Sharpe, manager of diagnostic imaging at Qikiqtani General Hospital in Iqaluit, operates the hospital’s new computed tomography, or "CT" scanner, Feb. 14. In operation since Feb. 3, the $2.1-million CT scanner helps medical staff make more accurate diagnoses and is expected to reduce patient wait-times, now that Nunavummiut do not have to travel south for the procedure, Nunavut’s health department says. The hospital will share records from the scans by April of this year with a hospital in Ottawa through a network connection. (PHOTO BY PETER VARGA)
