The Ministry of Health on Wednesday, received the first batch of ultra-modern digital radiology X-Ray equipment from the Delft Imaging Systems, a Dutch company, for the swift screening of suspected Tuberculosis (TB) cases across the country.

The Delft technology, which is a highly effective means to improve patient diagnoses and referral of TB cases and to build local capacity, is low-cost, user-friendly, highly safe; and has integrated solutions for image capture, image storage, and could also be used for educational purposes.

Mr Maurits Verhagen, the Project Manager of Universal Delft, at the presentation ceremony, said the delivery, formed part of a 21 million Euro joint project with a 35 per cent Dutch grant and 65 per cent funding from the Government of Ghana respectively, to accelerate TB case detection across the country.
