Remarks FAILED. The cost of the equipment exceeds the benefits gained.
Whereas The UTA Health Center has an X-ray machine and some limited pathological test equipment but no ultrasound machine for its patients; and
Whereas An ultrasound machine is one of the most important and widely used diagnostic machines for detecting intestinal aberrations, kidney disorders, soft tissue tumors, etc. very accurately; and
Whereas Currently UTA students with such disorders have to wait up to a month to get an appointment with outside clinics to have an ultrasound test; and
Whereas Beside the fact that outside clinics are most of the time expensive, this long waiting time is stressful to the students and could be detrimental to their health.
Be It Further Resolved That The UTA Health Center install an ultrasound machine for its patients to better serve their health needs.
