GE Press Statement | Fight against cancer: @GE Healthcare collaborates with Nigeria Sovereign Investment Authority @nsia_nigeria to advance early cancer detection in #Nigeria
Partnership will ensure provision of latest technology to enable early diagnostics and better treatment for cancer patients; NSIA- LUTH Cancer Center (NLCC) is the first hospital in West Central Africa to install GE Healthcare’s Discovery RT CT.
GE Healthcare has partnered with the Nigeria Sovereign Investment Authority (NSIA) to supply latest technology in computed tomography (CT), Discovery RT, to Lagos University Teaching Hospital for its modern NSIA-LUTH Cancer Center (NLCC), commissioned by President @MBuhari
The Discovery RT, a simulation CT machine, is the first of such technology to be installed in Nigeria. It enables physicians to study the body in detail allowing them to determine the exact location, shape, and size of the tumor to be treated.
As part of the partnership, GE Healthcare will also provide servicing of the equipment and deliver hands-on training for the hospital’s radiology staff on the new technology.
The new Radiotherapy Centre will increase access to quality services for the patients across Lagos state. This will help early detection and treatment of cancer, which improves chances of its being cured.
"We are happy to collaborate with @nsia_nigeria in this landmark achievement for Nigeria in progressing the availability of world-class radiotherapy for cancer patients in the region." - Eyong Ebai, General Manager for West Central and French Sub-Sahara Africa, GE Healthcare.
