Fluke Biomedical, Cleveland, has donated two MQSA mammography phantoms to the non-profit Radiology Mammography International (RMI) to be used in an upcoming mission to Nairobi, Kenya.
RMI provides support, donations, and hands-on training in mammography and breast cancer education to improve the quality of care in developing regions around the world.
The organization plans to install a Hologic/Lorad M IV system at the Kenyatta National Hospital, the major teaching hospital in the region with a radiology residency training program. RMI technologists will help train their Kenyan counterparts in the latest mammography techniques and procedures during the mission. All donated equipment will remain at the hospital for their ongoing use in their mammography division.
RMI has been organizing teaching missions around the world for almost twenty years. For more information, visit the organization’s Web site.
