Max Healthcare’s super speciality hospital in Saket, New Delhi has signed a partnership with Japan’s Fujifilm to train doctors in early detection of breast cancer.
Under the partnership, Fujifilm will sponsor an advanced six-month fellowship in breast imaging with Max Healthcare.
“Breast cancer in India is usually detected at an advanced stage like 3 or 4, when it is very late. This pact will help doctors detect cancer at an early stage and save many lives,” Fujifilm India’s senior vice-president and head of the medical division Chander Shekhar Sibal said today.
The partnership will start with training one doctor for six months in detection of breast cancer, and may later increase in size, said Bharat Aggarwal, director of radiology services at Max Super Speciality Hospital at Saket.
