In an endeavour to provide affordable diagnosis to patients, the Sharda Hospital, Noida has launched a ‘breast cancer detection mammography’ van. Equipped with all the latest technologies including special mammogram, the mobile van will travel across Uttar Pradesh and Haryana, touching the remote areas around the regions of Ghaziabad, Delhi, Noida, and Greater Noida.
The hospital aims to provide local people free of cost screening and tests facilities. The move would be helpful to detect breast cancer in easy and hassle-free manner.
Elaborating more about the novel initiative, P. K. Gupta, Chancellor, Sharda University, said, “The vision of this project is to eradicate factors responsible for the late stage detection of breast cancer, spread awareness among women regarding symptoms and the cause and provide breast cancer screening, free of cost to the patients.”
The hospital will organise Mammography Check-up Camps through this Mobile Mammography Van and more than 1200 urban and rural patients will be investigated and benefitted every year through the van.
“The Breast Cancer Detection Van will mark a milestone in the history of healthcare in India, providing highest standards of healthcare at the most affordable cost and optimizing healthcare relief with the purpose of the overall well being of cancer patients in the entire region”, said Dr Raja Dutta, COO, Sharda Hospital.
