In February 2021, we successfully completed the last phase of the Lagos State Ministry of Health project which began in December 2020. Altogether 21 digital x-ray installations, including 3 mobile screening vans, 8 semi-mobile containerized x-ray systems and 10 room installations were made.
Delft Imaging installed 5 Delft Lights with CAD4TB and CAD4COVID which they use for screening migrants at the border and prisons. With the financial support of the Global Fund, SMRU is managing a tuberculosis screening program in the migrant population from Myanmar.
Delft provided an EasyDR X-ray machine with our Computer Aided Detection for Tuberculosis software (CAD4TB). The X-ray screening on TB and silicosis, audio and other tests will be free of charge for all the migrating mine workers.
Early 2016, the National Tuberculosis Programme of Swaziland ordered a mobile OneStopTB clinic to screen around 100.000 inhabitants in Swaziland. They combined the EasyDR digital X-ray with the innovative CAD4TB software, which allowed for an instant triage of suspects. Besides this Delft delivered two EasyPortable X-rays to reach the remotest areas in the mountainous country.
In 2018, 12 digital X-ray systems were installed at the Connaught and at 10 district hospitals, through a tender by IDA Foundation that was Global Fund supported. These systems are entirely solar powered and include charging batteries that allow 4-6 hours of operation at night when grid power may be unavailable.
E-DETECT TB aims to actively detect TB in vulnerable population groups (inmates, drug users) and very poor populations with limited access to healthcare. Thus, with the help of a mobile medical unit equipped with imaging and molecular diagnostic equipment, specialists from the National Institute of Pneumophytiology “Marius Nasta” and sputum culture tests.
To provide relief and support to hospitals and clinics in the area, a Diagnostic Centre (DC) that offers complete medical diagnostic services to patients was an all-round solution for the Ghanaian healthcare system. The goal of the DC is to offer excellent and rapid healthcare to patients, but at an affordable price at the same time.
