Solution for Medical Imaging in Egypt


Improved medical imaging in Alexandria

The Arab Republic of Egypt has a large and growing population. There is a great need for improved healthcare placing greater demands on existing healthcare facilities. Most Government run hospitals in Egypt do not have highly sophisticated imaging equipment, so refer patients for scans, imaging and diagnosis to privately run centers such as the Dar El Ashaa.

Their service is critical to the health and treatment of the many patients referred to them so they need to be at the leading edge of medical imaging. Hitachi Medical Systems Middle East S.A.E. worked closely with Dar El Ashaa to deliver advanced diagnostic imaging equipment which met the needs of the people of Alexandria.

The need for high quality medical imaging in Alexandria

The Dar El Ashaa Radiology and Imaging Center is a facility owned and directed by highly experienced professors and staff members of the University of Alexandria Faculty of Medicine. It carries out medical examinations and imaging for thousands of patients, diagnosing their condition so that their doctors and consultants can recommend the correct medical treatment. They carry out CT and MRI scans, Radiography, Angiography and Ultrasonography.

Over the past few years the demand for medical imaging has increased significantly, so Dar El Ashaa now have five imaging centers in Alexandria to cope with this increasing demand. They aim to reach a precise diagnosis of the patient's condition utilising the safest, fastest and most cost effective imaging technique. To do this they need to be at the leading edge of medical imaging at all times. To ensure they do this they work with BM Egypt, a leading supplier of medical equipment in Egypt.

It supplies hospitals and medical practices throughout the whole of Egypt and acts as agent and importers for some of the world's leading manufacturers of medical equipment. This is where they deal with Hitachi, because Hitachi are the leaders in ultrasound equipment and have pioneered the development of open MRI scanners.
