Our Full Field Digital Mammography – Amulet Innovality is the future of Mammography and certainly has much scope considering the rapid increase in the number of breast cancer cases going undetected in India. In order to provide timely diagnosis, Fujifilm has installed Amulet Innovality in several healthcare centers across the country.
In addition, the development of Tomo biopsies has a fundamental role in early detection of the disease. Tomoguided biopsy can be beneficial in situations such as lesions can only be seen on tomosynthesis, lesions visible in only one view, and presence of subtle masses and asymmetries.
With rising cases of breast cancer in women, there is a pressing need to raise awareness about early cancer detection at grassroots level. While innovations in healthcare technologies will empower and strengthen our efforts, the imperative today is to strengthen our reach with a shared vision of helping people fight this growing menace.
The company has been making concerted effort to raise awareness and promote early detection and treatment of breast cancer in India. It had held several roadshows across the country to create awareness of the disease and consistently supported the pink ribbon campaign via Pinkathon.
The company has tie up with more than 25 hospitals to raise awareness and promote early detection facilities. Fujifilm firmly believe that with precise treatment and correct knowledge India can save many lives.
