X-ray Dosage Cut By New Procedure At Cape Fear Hoep.
An X-ray process installed
recently at Cape Fear Valley
Hospital cuts by half, in most
cases, the usual dosage of X-ray
radiation to patients, according to
hospital Director James R. Shafer.
The equipment employs a com
bination of special X-ray film and
an "intensifying screen." The
screen, a thin sheet of phosphores
cent material which is placed be
tween the patient and the film,
concentrates X-rays into more in
tense light rays which are more
easily "seen" by the film.
Developed by Du Pont, the
system allows a sharp reduction in
patient radiation exposure without
sacrificing image quality of the
X-ray, according to Jack Demp
sey, chief radiology technologist at
the 490-bed hospital.
Cape Fear Valley annually per
forms more than 78,000 X-ray ex
aminations and is the first hospital
in the state to totally convert to
this type of X-ray equipment,
Dempsey said.
I
Noting increasing federal
government concern with radiation
dosages and rising health care
costs, Dempsey said, "A
radiologist's objective is to use as
little radiation as possible while
still producing a readable X-ray.
"This new X-ray screen and film
system greatly reduces' patient
dosage and at the same time gives a
diagnostic image. It also enables us
to increase X-ray tube life and thus
hold down the line on hospital
costs."

There was good attendance for
worship service at Tabernacle Bap
tist Church the past Sunday. The
topic of the sermon was, "The
Responsibilities of the Home".
A baptismal service was held
after worship service. The service
was unique because of cir
cumstances.
Hitomi Hirose, a young
Japanese, was the sole candidate
for baptism. She came to the
U.S.A. from Japan on a student
visa to attend Wingate College.
She graduated this month with a
degreee in education.
During the last month of her
four years in America she became
a Christian and it was her desire to
be baptized prior to her return.
Rev. Barringer was made aware of
this and thanks to Tabernacle Bap
tist Church her prayer was
answered.
Our thoughts and prayers are
with her as she returns to her
homeland and continues to grow in
her faith.
The Ordination last Sunday for
Rev. James "Jimmy" Dees was
most impressive at Tabernacle
Baptist Church and they are indeed
proud to have another minister
from the church.
Those participating were Rev.
Carl Strickland of Rockingham,
Rev. "Mac" Musslewhite of Pitt
man Grove Baptist Church, Rev.
Robert Turner and Rev. Archie
Barringer, church pastor. Music
was provided by "The Jubilee
Choir".
Among special guests who at
tended was Jimmy's mother, Mrs.
Elbert Dees of Carolina Beach,
Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Morrell of
Fayetteville, parents of Mrs. Dees
and Rev. and Mrs. Carl Strickland
of Rockingham. Following the ser
vice a reception was held in the
Fellowship Hall of the Church.
The semi-annual meeting of The
New South River Association was
held Tuesday at First Baptist
Church at Hope Mills and Thurs
day at Macedonia Baptist Church.
Delegates from Tabernacle Baptist
Church attended.
Saturday morning at 7:00 a.m.
the church bus will depart from the
church grounds for "Carowinds".
There will also be some going by
car as the bus could not carry
everyone who wanted to go.
Everyone is looking forward to a
great time.
