Thanks to your donations and especially the participation of employees in the weekly draws, we recently financed the purchase of an imaging system dedicated to biopsy and surgical specimens (at a cost of $140,000). The machine has been delivered!
It is a device that allows X-rays to be taken, from a very small breast biopsy sample up to a larger surgical sample, in real-time. The digital technology of this device allows us to have very high-quality images in a very short time.
Previously, the patient had to remain in an uncomfortable position while the technologist went to another room to complete the analysis. Now, thanks to this technological investment and the small size of the device, it is installed directly in the biopsy room, which favours rapid analysis and significantly reduces discomfort and waiting time.
