Cooperation between Suriname and PAHO to improve radiological diagnostic
The devices are important for quality control measurements on devices of the diagnostic radiology. With the donated measuring devices, a thorough quality control system can be set up so that faults in the devices of the diagnostic radiology can be detected and solved at an early stage. In addition, the measuring devices are also used for quality measurements, resulting in a higher quality of radiology services. This reduces the chance of misdiagnosis due to malfunctioning X-ray machines.
The next step after the handover is the training of personnel in use of the measuring equipment to perform measurements on the radiology devices in their institution. The training sessions take place in the period from 30 July to 4 August 2018. The training is also sponsored by the PAHO.
