It also said that with a commitment to impart awareness and educate about breast cancer, Fujifilm and Max Healthcare hospital, as part of their association, are running this fellowship programme to train doctors in breast mammography, breast MR and breast ultrasound techniques for a six-month duration. Through this, they aim to train two radiologists each year towards the early detection of breast cancer.
Commenting on the success of the fellowship, Chander Shekhar Sibal, Senior Vice President and Head – Medical Division, Fujifilm India, said, “We are delighted to announce the second fellowship certificate in radio-diagnostics to another doctor this year. Our association with Max Healthcare has given us a platform to train doctors about screening facilities that can help in early detection and save the lives of many. With this achievement, we pledge to continue to raise awareness about the benefits of mammography screening for early detection of breast cancer among women.”
With an increasing number of cases of breast cancer in women, it is imperative to not only raise awareness on the subject but also introduce modern technologies to ensure enhanced patient care. The primary goal of this fellowship is to train doctors in advanced diagnostics and spread awareness about the early detection of breast cancer, the statement added.
