Fujifilm India Pvt Ltd, a pioneer in diagnostic imaging and information systems for healthcare facilities announced the installation of its state-of-the-art Amulet Innovality — a highly advanced breast cancer diagnostic machine at the Holy Spirit Hospital in Mumbai today.
With a commitment to offering unique and innovative technologies, Fujifilm India has installed its AMULET Innovality – Full Field Digital Mammography (FFDM) machines that works towards making early detection of breast cancer a reality for women by achieving optimum image quality at a very low patient dose. It combines state-of-the-art, Hexagonal Close Pattern (HCP) image capture technology, and intelligent image processing, optimising contrast, and dose based on breast density which results in exceptional imaging, optimised contrast, low dose, and fast acquisition time. Fujifilm’s Imaging Technology Center (R&D) team has designed this technology to meet the challenging requirements of radiologists, mammography technologists, administrators, and patients alike.
Commenting on the occasion, Mr. Chander Shekhar Sibal, Executive Vice President & Head of Medical Division at Fujifilm India stated that, “As pioneers in the diagnostic imaging and information systems, we are elated to install our Digital Mammography Machine at the Holy Spirit Hospital and provide women the access to world-class mammography solutions. Understanding the changing needs and demands of the medical sector, we have designed this machine to help doctors conduct fast and hassle-free medical examinations with utmost precision. With this association, we aim to save lives by offering the highest standard of healthcare solutions and spread awareness about early detection of breast cancer in India.”
Further commenting on the association, Dr. Sneha, Executive Director, Holy Spirit Hospital said, “The alarming rise in breast cancer among women can be curbed and improves with early detection and innovative technologies. Our partnership with Fujifilm India will bring together the power of innovation in medical technologies and scale our fight against breast cancer in a new way. With Fujifilm’s Amulet Innovality series, it will allow us to protect women’s health by offering timely treatments at an affordable cost with our doctor patient friendly approach.”
Dr. Shampa Brahmachari, Sr. Consultant Radiologist, Holy Spirit Hospital further added, “With Fujifilm’s constant innovations and a doctor’s constant endeavour to offer the best treatment, the fight against any disease can be scaled to a new level. Early and precise detection, timely treatments, and the right amount of attention will help increase the survival rates among patients.”
The AMULET Innovality is the result of Fujifilm’s ongoing ‘innovation’ and commitment to providing top ‘quality’ mammography services. The Innovality utilizes Fujifilm’s unique a-Se direct conversion flat panel detector (FPD)*1 to produce clear images with a low X-ray dose. This system makes use of intelligent AEC (i AEC) combined with an image analysis technology to automatically adjust the X-ray dosage for each breast type. It is a highly advanced mammography system, which offers an extremely fast image interval of just 15 seconds.
