The Radiological Society of Mauritius hosted for the first time in Mauritius the International Musculoskeletal Summit and we were proud to support this pioneering event, regrouping international experts in the field.
“The Summit was a total success, and the international and local delegates learnt a lot from the expertise and teaching skills of our Faculty comprising of world renowned Radiologists and Professors from India, South Africa, UAE, UK and USA,” shares Dr Patrick Alain CHUI WAN CHEONG, OSK, President of the Radiological Society of Mauritius.
During this 3-day interactive workshop held on 15 to 17 September, the delegates had the opportunity to discover intermediate level and some advanced topics in Musculoskeletal Radiology/Medicine.
HealthActiv also featured two ultrasound machines, the Acuson Juniper and the Acuson P500, from Siemens Healthineers, which are pioneering in a new era of imaging excellence.
“Precision is key to early diagnosis and treatment plans for patients. The detail and clarity of soft tissue imaging offered by these machines is remarkable. We are excited to bring these advances to our healthcare community. Together, we are paving the way for a healthier future,” exclaims Vikash Seetaram, Head of Healthcare Technologies at HealthActiv.
Some global Musculoskeletal MRI experts were assisted by our technical team to demonstrate how these ultrasound machines provide detailed information on complex anatomical structures, from shoulder, elbow, wrist, hip, knee to ankle.
The Acuson Juniper is renowned for its image quality, making it ideal for detailed soft tissue imaging. Its advanced technology enables clinicians to make more accurate diagnoses and facilitate patient management. It features smart user interface that speeds up scanning settings and protocols and adapts to clinical departments.
On the other hand, the compact and powerful Acuson P500 is a portable ultrasound system that offers clinicians a powerful range of clinical applications right at the patient’s bedside. It delivers high-quality, standardised images with greater depth, clearer definition and more tissue variations, and is equipped with advanced transducers and features.
Musculoskeletal disorders include diverse conditions that can affect bones, joints, muscles, and connective tissues. According to WHO, approximately 1.71 billion people have musculoskeletal conditions worldwide.
