Affidea España incorporates state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment at the Hospital San Francisco de Asís 2022.


Madrid, November 21, 2022-. Affidea, Europe's largest provider of advanced diagnostic, outpatient and oncology services, has renewed its MRI equipment at the Hospital Universitario San Francisco de Asís (HUSFDA) (Madrid), where Affidea has been providing radiodiagnostic services since 1988. True to its commitment to updating its equipment, Affidea Spain has renewed two MRI machines: a new 3 tesla MRI machine and a 1.5 tesla MRI machine. These state-of-the-art machines offer high quality and incorporate applications such as the latest advances in breast MRI, cardiac and vascular morphological and functional analysis, as well as advanced neuroimaging techniques: perfusion, spectroscopy and tractography.

The SIGNA Pioneer MRI machine features General Electrics' (GE) most advanced 3.0T magnet design, a spacious 70 cm patient bore with bright internal bore illumination, Total Digital Imaging RF architecture, and MultiDrive RF transmission technology, which offers exceptional image quality, reducing scan times.

Theo Kravvas, Country Manager of Affidea Spain, states that "we are very pleased to announce today the completion of the installation of a new 3T MRI at HUSFDA. With this installation we have completed an ambitious plan to upgrade the technology and clinical capabilities we are offering at the Affidea center within HUSFDA, following the installation of a new 1.5T MRI last year. With the new equipment we are expanding our diagnostic service in areas such as advanced cardiology, advanced urology, advanced neurology and advanced breast, fully aligned with our strategic vision focusing on the further development of subspecialties. I would like to thank HUSFA for their confidence in Affidea and we look forward to growing together in the future".

For his part, José Manuel López, Managing Director of Hospital Universitario San Francisco de Asís, points out that "HUSFDA continues to incorporate cutting-edge healthcare technology to offer the most complete service to our patients.
