Faisal gets hi-tech breast cancer gadget
KIGALI - Breast cancer patients have renewed hopes after King Faisal Hospital in Kigali secured a high-tech machine to help doctors detect the disease. The mammography machine, which uses X-ray images of the affected breast, helps physicians to detect and evaluate breast cancer at an early stage. It is part of the newly procured medical apparatus from a $12 million (approx Frw6.7bn) grant, which Saudi Arabia offered to King Faisal Hospital (KFH).
