Oyo ac­quires equip­ment to boost health care ser­vice

The Punch - - HEALTH -

The oyo State Gov­ern­ment, in a bid to im­prove health care in­fra­struc­ture, has pro­cured a Siemens Mag­netic Res­o­nance Imag­ing (MRI) 1.5 Tesla for the Ladoke Ak­in­tola Univer­sity of Tech­nol­ogy Teach­ing hospi­tal in og­bo­moso.

The Man­ag­ing Director of Swiss Biostadt Lim­ited, Dr Emma Ajayi, said the new 1.5T MRI ma­chine would fa­cil­i­tate health care de­liv­ery in the coun­try, stress­ing that with the fa­cil­i­ties avail­able,

LAUTECH Teach­ing hospi­tal had emerged as the lead­ing cen­tre for ra­di­ol­ogy and med­i­cal imag­ing in Nige­ria.

Ajayi, in a state­ment is­sued on Mon­day, noted that the hospi­tal is now poised to take health care de­liv­ery in oyo to the fron­tiers of in­ter­na­tion­ally ac­cept­able and re­pro­ducible health stan­dards.

he noted that the 1.5T MRI would help to in­tro­duce se­quences and pro­to­cols that were hith­erto im­pos­si­ble, thereby re­sult­ing in im­proved im­age qual­ity, faster scan­ning and im­proved pa­tient com­fort.

“The ma­chine will ex­pand the scope of ser­vice with even the ca­pa­bil­ity for whole-body screen­ing for cancer with­out ex­pos­ing the pa­tient to ra­di­a­tion.

“our com­pany is a sci­ence­based tech­nol­ogy com­pany; we en­sure that cus­tomers de­rive value for their money from the ser­vices we pro­vide.

“We are a suc­cess story in Nige­ria and our per­for­mances have stood us out. our goal as a mod­est Com­pany is to cre­ate a healthy en­vi­ron­ment that will breed healthy peo­ple and im­prove the lives of men and women. We are a lead­ing light in the health­care sec­tor of the Nige­rian econ­omy,” Ajayi said.

he added that the lat­est MRI 1.5 Tesla is highly pro­duc­tive, eas­ier, faster, ap­pli­ca­ble with a rate of con­fi­dence, and a more ef­fi­cient ap­proach to high­est and con­sis­tent im­age qual­ity.
