Premium digital mammography – even in challenging circumstances
Healthcare News | 2014-08-25
Eight months after the strongest typhoon in world history devastated the central region of the Philippines, Divine Word Hospital (DWH) was the first hospital in the world to install Mammomat Fusion. With the installation of this premium digital mammography system, DWH is once again fulfilling its mission of providing quality and accessible healthcare to the community.
After the typhoon had hit Divine Word Hospital (DWH), the radiology department was completely under water. Practically all the imaging equipment was damaged, including the analog mammography system. Thanks to the generous aid of local and foreign donors, DWH is slowly recovering. Now, equipped with Mammomat Fusion, DWH has reopened the doors of its radiology department to patients who require advanced diagnostic imaging services.
Why is Mammomat Fusion the right solution for DWH?
Mammomat Fusion is the latest addition to the family of mammography systems from Siemens Healthcare. It combines robust technology with selected product features from the premium segment to address the specific needs of the midrange price segment.
High patient volumes, fast and easy operation, as well as the right balance between dose and image quality are important factors when it comes to mammography. With the integration of the new generation cesium-iodide detector Mammomat Fusion delivers high-quality images quickly and reliably.
“When we decided to purchase a new mammography system, we initially planned to replace the analog system we had before the typhoon,” says Sr. Amadea Donadilafrom DWH. “But we decided to upgrade to the digital Mammomat Fusion, which is a testament to our determination to become an even better hospital after a very traumatic event. With its robust detector, excellent image quality and fast workflow, Mammomat Fusion was clearly the right choice for us.”
