Max Super Speciality Hospital, Saket a leading hospital chain in North India has signed pact with Fujifilm India, a leader in the development and application of imaging and information innovations.
In view of shortage of radiologists and limited experts in the area of breast cancer diagnostics, two giants have decided to join hands to train doctors in early detection of cancer.
Fujifilm will be sponsoring an advanced fellowship in Breast imaging with Max Healthcare Hospital under the guidance of Dr Bharat Aggarwal, Director – Radiology Services, Max Super Speciality Hospital, Saket and Dr Harit Chaturvedi, Chairman – Max Institute of Cancer Care.
The doctors will be trained in Breast Mammography, Breast MR, and Breast Ultrasound techniques for six months through the Max-Fujifilm Collaboration fellowship program. The program will train two select Radiologists per year towards early detection of Breast Cancer.
Responding to the development, Haruto Iwata, MD, Fujifilm India said, “According to health ministry of India breast cancer ranks as the number one cancer among Indian females with rate as high as 25.8 per 100,000 women and mortality of 12.7 per 100,000 women. We at Fujifilm understand the importance of early detection and are committed at improving the survival rates with advanced treatments. Our revolutionary AMULET INNOVALITY is one such product that has made early detection of breast cancer a reality for women all over the world.”
Dr Bharat Aggarwal, Director, Radiology Services, Max Super Speciality Hospital, Saket said, “A radiologic exam is an integral part of the diagnosis procedure in the oncology space as it uses radiation or other imaging procedures to find signs of cancer. With increasing occurrence of breast cancer in women, it is imperative to not only raise awareness on the subject but also various modern technologies that have been introduced in the industry to ensure enhanced patient care. The primary goal for our collaboration with Fujifilm is to provide complete and innovative medical attention to breast cancer patients. The new cutting-edge Amulet Innovality with 50micronresolution will play a key role in our battle against breast cancer.”
