Fuerteventura will have nine new ultrasound machines

Fuerteventura will have nine new ultrasound machines.

The Ministry of Health invests more than 5.4 million euros in 180 ultrasound machines for health centres across the islands

The Ministry of Health of the Government of the Canary Islands, through the General Directorate of Assistance Programs of the Canary Islands Health Service, promotes the implementation and development of clinical ultrasound in the Primary Care centers of all the Health Areas of the archipelago with the acquisition of a total of 180 ultrasound scanners, which are currently being distributed to the health centers of all the islands.

This is one of the measures contemplated within the Comprehensive Strategy for Primary and Community Care, +PC. The SCS has allocated an investment of 5,442,660 euros to this acquisition, financed with Next Generation funds.

With the incorporation of this equipment, family medicine and paediatric professionals can use ultrasound as another tool for exploration in their clinical practice and, in this way, guide their diagnoses more appropriately, which has a positive impact on the quality of care provided to the population.

By Health Areas, these 180 ultrasound machines are distributed as follows: 65 for Tenerife, 64 for Gran Canaria, 16 for La Palma, 12 for Lanzarote, 10 for La Gomera, nine for Fuerteventura and four for El Hierro.

The implementation of this equipment is accompanied by a process of theoretical and practical training for the professionals who will use it so that they know its advantages and possibilities.

Benefits of Clinical Ultrasound in Primary Care

Clinical ultrasound is an essential tool in the field of Primary Care. In clinical practice, the use of ultrasound has become part of the physical examination performed on the patient, improving their performance, as it allows the observation and precise measurement of multiple organs that are difficult to assess with other methods.

In addition, it serves to guide the diagnosis of suspicion and guide decision-making in a more effective way. This reduces the number of additional complementary tests, as well as referrals to the field of Specialized Care. In cases where this referral is required, the indications are more precise and of higher quality, thus speeding up the diagnostic and therapeutic process.

In the field of the Emergency Department, ultrasound makes it possible to detect pathologies that may represent severity in less time, which makes it possible to reduce sequelae and even mortality, in some cases.

The incorporation of this equipment into the Primary Care health centres of all the islands allows examinations to be carried out in various anatomical territories and various clinical situations
