The consultation rate of breast cancer screening in
A mammography device by
"Mammography requires higher de?nition image technology equipment in the diagnosis of very small objects.
Using the original technology,
"We have developed the X-ray detector panel by using our leading scienti?c technology. Since a high-de?nition image can be obtained with low
radiation, it signi?cantly limits the radiation exposure to the body," added
"Breast cancer can be prevented when people feel easier to come to consultation. And if detected at early stage, breast cancer can be cured. We are aiming to develop devices more gentle to women, with lower radiation," Muramoto said.
Computed Tomography, CT scan, is a technology that uses computer processed x-rays to produce virtual images of specific areas of the body.
Its images are used for diagnostic in various medical disciplines.
In comparison with the conventional CT scanner, this new model has achieved much quicker image scanning.
"This device is developed significantly as compare to conventional one. It can also take video in place of photography," said
" It was not possible to capture the motion of the heart with the conventional CT scanner. However, this model enables to capture the whole image of the heart at one rotation cycle. By rendering the sequence of images, it creates the moving image of the heart," Kamei added.
The time of one rotation cycle takes less than a second.
This high-speed imaging is also contributes to a low exposure amount of X-ray radiation.
Through its technical training programme,
For patients who cannot come to hospital for a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI),
The company in
The facility will help the service to reach the maximum people.
" We wanted MRI but we could not afford to have it due to the budget and the space in the hospital. We heard about the rental MRI car. The service is suitable to our need. So far, we have detected an aneurysm, several tumors and so on. Also we can refer patients to the specialized hospital after the MRI. It's very helpful. In future, we'd like to offer the concept of mobile medical rental service in Asian countries and contribute to better healthcare in countries there," said
The expansion of techniques in medical devices is the need of an hour. And the Japanese manufacturers are keen to tap the world market with their advance technology. (ANI)
