What's so special about Koronadal Diagnostic Center? This coming summer 2011, the new elastograph will be available here.
|Digital Imaging for Early Diagnosis of Cancer|
I first learned about elastography through Dr. Ben A. Suedad, Jr, radiologist. He recently finished his training in Europe to operate the new Hitachi Preirus with elastography and he will be bringing this new technology in Koronadal Diagnostic Center. This imaging technology has been widely used in the US and Europe, but developed and improved in Japan. This advancement in detecting cancer in its early stage can save more lives. So women in South Cotabato and nearby provinces do not have to travel far.
Breast cancer is a top threat to women in the Philippines. In the majority of cases, breast cancer is transmitted through the genes so women with relatives who have breast cancer are highly encouraged to submit themselves to scanning for early diagnosis. Women in areas far from modern hospital facilities have the least chances. Good thing this new elastography ultrasound will soon be available in South Cotabato.
