The Alt Penedés Consorci Sanitari inaugurates a new high-end ultrasound system

07 March, 2019

The imaging Diagnostic Service of the Regional Hospital of Alt Penedès (CSAP) has launched a new high quality ultrasound system that has been donated by the Torres Family Foundation.

This donation aims to support initiatives to improve access to essential services and to ensure social integration and personal development of the most vulnerable groups.

Mireia Torres, president of the Torres Family Foundation, was in charge of inaugurating the device at an event held at the Alt Penedès Hospital together with Mr. Joan Puigdollers, president of the Alt Penedès Health Consortium, Dr. José Luis Ibáñez, manager of the health service entity, and Dr. Merche Rodriguez, head of the Diagnostic imaging Service of CSAP.

The main feature of the new ultrasound is that it has a high resolution image. This allows greater precision in diagnosis.

The high quality of the images obtained also makes scan times shorter. This is essential when diagnosing children and patients who may find it uncomfortable when it comes to undergoing a medical test.

The inclusion of this ultrasound machine, thanks to the collaboration of the Torres Family Foundation, represents an advance in the Imaging Diagnostic Service, which works every day to provide the best care to patients in the region.

The donation of the ultrasound machine has been a very good opportunity to collaborate with our immediate environment and we hope it will serve as a precedent for social responsibility and for contributions that private companies or entities can make to our society.
