Rijeka – DIOKI Group and JANAF Plc. donated a € 549.000,00 worth digital diascopic RTG apparatus to the Clinical Hospital Centre Rijeka, intended to the Department of Radiology. Owing to the procurement of this digital diascopic RTG apparatus, the intervention radiology and gastroenterology services can be opened. By using the digital diascopic RTG, the patients are less exposed to the radiation, while the instruments provide for greater diagnostic reliability to be achieved and the analysis procedure to be shortened due to the electronic records exchange.
“The multi-purpose digital diascopic apparatus has become fully operational at the beginning of this year. In the second half of the last year, after considerable break, the diagnostic radiology of the digestive system has been re-established, thus reducing the enormous waiting list to about 2-month waiting period. Furthermore, the diagnostic gynecology has been re-established, which uses the diascopy – hysterosalpingography. However, afterwards the diagnostics and intervention in angiology has started, for the time being, on peripheral arteries and very soon it will be applied on carotid arteries as well. Carotid artery stenting is a continuance of procedure on the Department of Radiology, which we have initiated 3 years ago and achieved one of the leading series on the national levels with the minimum complication rate. The donated apparatus has significantly improved the possibilities of performing the complex intervention procedures in the fields of vascular and non-vascular interventions. The intervention procedures are also being introduced on the bile ducts and digestive tract.
The digital system enables an image to be saved and stored in a digital form with a possibility of its distribution to all departments of the Clinical Hospital Centre Rijeka without using the film. The possibility of subsequent processing of an image obtained in terms of its quality improvement, as well as the possibility of reviewing the dynamic digital record reduce significantly the patients’ exposure to the ionising X-ray radiation and it is also of extreme importance in the education of medical students and residents. When conventional systems are concerned, in order to repeat a certain part of examination, a patient needs to be submitted to radiation. The digital detector in fact represents the most expensive part of the apparatus and owing to this technology the value of this donation is even more appreciable and significant. The record by means of digital detector protects a patient from unnecessary radiation and enables a doctor/physician to have an image of high quality and to perform safer procedure,” said prof.dr.sc. Damir Miletić, head of the Department of Radiology of the Clinical Hospital Centre (KBC) Rijeka.
“The donation of this apparatus ensures that the patients obtain the best medical care and that the doctors make faster and better diagnoses. Thus, a better health care of the entire population is enabled and doctors’ work is facilitated, which contributes to improvement and preservation of the human health. It is our great pleasure that this donation has been realized, since in this way we confirm our awareness on socially responsible business and take part in improvement and development of social activities of local community. Our investments intended for the social community will continue to be realized through future donations and other activities on that field, as well as along the entire route of our pipeline,” pointed out Mr. Ante Markov, Chairman of the JANAF Management Board.
“Modern technology should not be a privilege, but a basic tool in the work of our health institutions. It is a basic presumption in planning the donation activities of DIOKI Group. By business growth and development, our opportunities are also growing to help the local community in achieving this priority. I would therefore like to seize this opportunity and to announce that also this year DIOKI Group will help with equipping the Clinical Hospital Centre Rijeka. We will donate to the Department of Pulmology, Clinic for Internal Medicine at Sušak, a necessary monitor defibrillator, which is, among other things, important for detecting the carbon dioxide with the Department patients,” said Mr. Robert Ježić, majority shareholder of DIOKI d.d.
