2014 Funding Initiatives
2014 MATCHING GRANT
An endourology table is used for myriad urological needs, such as diagnostic and therapeutic interventions for patients with bladder cancer and kidney stones. More than an operating room table, it offers digital imaging of the urinary tract during procedures with a wider field of vision. The next generation of tables offers sharper image quality, less radiation exposure and faster examination of patients. Sutter Roseville Medical Center currently uses a standard operating room table for urologic procedures and seeks philanthropic funding for a state-of-the-art endourology table to enhance patient care and safety.

Benefits include decreased perceptions of pain, distraction from uncomfortable procedures, improved ability to handle stressors, and reduction in depression, anxiety and insomnia.
