Diagnostic Centres are full-service imaging facilities that provide comprehensive screening and diagnostics to ensure the highest quality care and to service patients’ needs.
Shifting the Focus to Diagnosis
Communicable and non-communicable diseases are increasingly prevalent in Africa, and their management relies on the accurate diagnosis of patients. In the past, however, governments and donors have been focusing their efforts on treatment instead, and that is why adequate diagnostic facilities containing CT or MRI scanners are few and far between. This problem is exacerbated by the lack of proper maintenance for the diagnostic facilities that do exist, driving even more patients abroad and making diagnosis the weakest link in the healthcare chain.
Turn-Key Facilities with Diagnostic Imaging
To fill the void of diagnostic capacity, Delft Imaging Systems introduces the Diagnostic Centre (DC). A turn-key, high-quality facility with excellent diagnostic imaging systems, servicing neighboring hospitals in a modern and highly efficient way.
The Diagnostic Centre is equipped with a CT scanner, X-ray, ultrasound, mammography and, optionally, an MRI.
The design of the DC sets itself apart in two ways: first of all the high quality of its diagnostic systems means there is very little competition on the same service level. And additionally, it’s the utilisation of modern and efficient workflow software that makes the entire centre geared towards low operating costs.
The Diagnostic Centre allows patients to receive a complete examination and report from the on-site radiologist within 2-3 hours. This ‘same-day diagnosis’ is unprecedented in African countries and offers great value towards the clients.
