In April, Medical Tactile shipped the first SureTouch unit to Corinthian Medical Systems which was installed at the Peace and Love Hospital. Dr. Wiafe Addai and her staff are now using the SureTouch system as part of their breast cancer screening and detection efforts.
The arrival of the SureTouch device generated a great deal of interest in Ghana. Here is a link to an article about press conference that was held:
Ian Finlayson, our distributor from Australia, who was instrumental in arranging this distribution agreement traveled to Ghana to assist in training on the SureTouch system and represent Medical Tactile at the press conference. He provided some pictures from his visit.
