COUCH funds Lymphatic Mapping Probe for Cairns Base Hospital

Posted on 25th Jun 2012 under News

Couch was pleased to receive a request from the Far North Queensland Hospital Foundation to ask assistance in funding a Lymphatic Mapping Probe for the Operating Theatre Department at Cairns Base Hospital. The Probes are over $20,000 each and are used to detect cancer in the lymph nodes with particular reference to breast cancer and melanoma spread. The COUCH Committee in a unanimous decision approved the request and subsequent funds. COUCH Chairman Charlie Woodwood said “We can see no better use of some of COUCH funds to ensure better treatment of Cancer patients at Cairns Base. For the committee this was a very easy decision.
