Hospitals Nationwide Face Shortages Of Crucial Scanning Supplies
Supply chain issues are causing major headaches for hospitals across the country as they are forced to explore various conservation strategies for dwindling scanning supplies. According to a letter released by St. Luke's Health Network in Pennsylvania, the hospital system, along with many all over the United States, is taking added steps to conserve contrast media. Current precautionary measures include the use of other imaging technologies and postponing non-emergency procedures. The letter blames Covid-related supply chain disruptions in China and states that the problem is occurring in all U.S. hospitals.
