Fujifilm India recently inaugurated its state-of-the-art Center of Excellence in collaboration with Yashoda Hospital in Hyderabad. The inaugural event focussed on highlighting Fujifilm’s association with Yashoda Hospital to create a first-of-its-kind training platform for pulmonology speciality in India. With this, the company is aiming at educating and offering training to clinicians in endoscopy and serve society with better healthcare and diagnosis.
At the centre, Fujifilm will offer adequate training to doctors and enable them to detect early growth in the lungs, sample the tissue/node, targeted biopsy and treat them timely resulting in a reduced spread of the disease.
They will additionally be able to diagnose mediastinal nodes and conduct ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) to rule out the confusion between diagnosis of sarcoidosis and lung tuberculosis with the help of endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS) system.
Koji Wada, MD, Fujifilm India said, “With our collaboration with Yashoda Hospital, Hyderabad, we have taken a step ahead to offer comprehensive facilities and advanced technology that will help in the timely detection of the disease. Our centre will enhance knowledge, skills, procedures, and create a more satisfactory experience for the patients."
The centre will provide a plethora of course options to clinicians ranging from Basic Bronchoscopy Simulation Certification to EBUS Simulation Certification. Other offered courses are, Advanced Bronchoscopy Simulation Certification, Pediatric Bronchoscopy Simulation Certification and Navigation Bronchoscopy Simulation Certification.
