A year-round 24-hour service is provided in a comfortable environment with guaranteed privacy. Aside from the newly equipped machines, DDI has recently completed the installation of the PACS System and Cone –Beam Breast CT.
The PACS System has successfully integrated with the Hospital Information System (HIS). Clinicians can now review digital images in wards and OPD consultation rooms. At the same time the PACS System has also integrated with the Hospital Authority’s (HA) ePR System. On patient’s request, digital images and imaging report can now be transferred to the HA System.
The Cone-Beam Breast CT is the first ever commercially available in Asia. It is designed specifically to image the entire breast with a single scan, without compression of the breast tissue. It is a joint-venture with a specialist, with the aim of allowing a fast procedure with excellent patient comfort, and a revolutionary advancement in breast cancer diagnosis.
