The Bard Magnum Breast Lump Biopsy Set for image-guided breast lump biopsies and Senographe Pristina 3D equipment, which provides 3D imaging at the lowest radiation exposure with improved diagnostic accuracy in the identification of breast cancer, are both located in the treatment room.

The centre was built due to the high amount of breast cancer in women.

The need for the centre has been underlined, according to Mr. Mike Sangster, Managing Director of TotalEnergies Upstream, who was present with Mrs. Kenechi Esomeju, General Manager, CSR, TotalEnergies EP Nigeria.

In addition, the need for this intervention has been underscored by a significant increase in breast cancer incidence and the fatality rate among women associated with it. The project will aid in early detection and contribute to more lives being saved. The mammography centre was successfully finished and commissioned, and Mr. Luc Vanson, Chief Operating Officer of Prime Oil and Gas, expressed his happiness and excitement at these developments. He noted that breast cancer is a serious health concern that needs to be addressed. He suggested that the target population make excellent use of the centre.

Facility has to be maintained and open to serve the people.

Anambra State Commissioner of Health, Dr. Ben Afam Obidike, also spoke at the occasion and gave the benefactors assurances that the centre would be operational, well-maintained, and accessible to the public. He pledged to spread word about the centre around the neighbourhood. They will cultivate a culture of upkeep. It is necessary that the centre be maintained and open to serve our people.
