Liberia, in 2020, had a total population of approximately 5.1 million people. That year, there were an estimated 16,000 people who developed TB. Among them, 2,600 were children. Moreover, there were an estimated 9,042 missing people with TB (of which 1,544 were children).
In 2016, Delft Imaging received the contract to – together with partners – build and equip a Diagnostic Centre in Liberia on behalf of the National Social Security and Welfare Corporation in Liberia (NASSCORP). The diagnostic centre included an MRI, CT, Ultrasound, digital bucky X-ray room, mammography and relevant RIS/PACS systems.
In 2017, we delivered an EasyPortable digital X-ray to the Ministry of Health of Liberia. The X-ray system came with a portable lead shield, powerpack, flight cases, and CAD4TB artificial intelligence software to detect TB-related abnormalities on chest X-rays. The project included transportation, installation and training services.
