31 Jul Agfa, Mondial team up to brighten PH healthcare
BELGIUM-BASED Agfa Group has teamed up with Mondial Medical Technologies to expand its medical imaging market in the Philippines.
Under the partnership, MTT will be the distributor of Agfa’s Digital Radiography products in the Philippines. Touted as a new force in mobile direct radiology, the DRIOOs extends its patient-centered benefits in Philippine hospitals and clinics.
The DRIOOs is a mobile digital radiology system that is flexible and efficient. It features excellent DR image quality that enables “first-time right” imaging at low radiation dose that allows for faster workflow in the department, better patient care and diagnosis.
“The total DR business in the Philippines is estimated at $1.2 billion, and that includes mobile x-rays, floor mounted, ceiling mounted, DR Retrofits and digital RF,” said Agfa Healthcare’s country business development manager for the Philippines Edison Laserna.
“Our team from Agfa, together with Mondial, will be touring around the Philippines to show the product to our customers,” Laserna said.
Mondial Medical Technologies sales director Arlene Navarro said, “the Mobile D100s will be offered to both private and government hospitals in all regions of the country to provide our radiologists and technicians with the best imaging quality, enabling faster diagnosis and treatment.”
Mondial Medical Technologies managing director Angel Yrastorza is “very confident with the Agfa Mobile DR100s, as our debut product to the rest of the AGFA healthcare line”.
“Its technology is cut above the rest of the competition which Mondial looks for in all its offerings as we aim to be at the forefront of the industry,” he said.
The machine is very mobile and can be maneuvered even in small spaces with its Zero Force Technology. Its agility enables staff members to easily do imaging, in the bedside, wards, ICU and operating rooms. Equipped with Agfa’s gold standard intelligent Musica image processing technology, it provides the highest image quality while using the lowest possible patient radiation dose.
MFT Group chief executive Mica Tan, the holding company of Mondial Medical Technologies, sees substantial potential in the launch.
