De Los Santos Medical Center (DLSMC), a subsidiary of Manuel V. Pangilinan’s MVP Group of Companies under the Metro Pacific Hospital Holdings, Inc.

The launch of the new 128-slice CT Scanner bolsters the hospital’s existing radiology services and reiterates their commitment to providing patients with the best healthcare options and state-of-the-art technology. “Our hospital strives to continuously upgrade our facilities and expand our service offerings to provide doctors and patients all the tools they need for effective and efficient diagnosis and treatment,” shared DLSMC President and CEO Raul C.

The hospital’s new 128-slice CT Scanner delivers uncompromised image quality at much lower radiation doses. "This new machine gives our doctors options for quicker procedures with high-quality outputs and lower radiation exposure, effectively allowing them to help more patients faster and with less risk," said Dr. Kimberly Ang-Baluyut, Head of DLSMC's Radiology Department.

The system is built on core technologies that deliver four key benefits – improved image quality, better patient experiences, greater economic value, and advanced applications. For patients requiring CT examination, and in particular for those requiring cardiac, brain, or peripheral vascular tests, the 128-slice CT Scanner offers the latest advances in CT imaging technology, enabling doctors to achieve better resolution, clarity, and definition with each scan. These high-resolution and precise images aid clinicians in making more accurate and efficient diagnoses, which ensure accurate treatments.

Additionally, the machine delivers these quality images at very low radiation doses helping to limit patients’ radiation exposure by up to 82%. It also ensures quicker CT procedures boosting productivity by up to 40% and allowing doctors to see more patients faster without sacrificing quality. Procedure speed is a key upgrade for patients such as stroke victims who have a higher chance of survival with faster diagnosis and treatment.

“Our new 128-slice CT scan is just another step on the hospital’s journey towards providing patients with more options and the best diagnostics and healthcare available,” Pagdanganan added. “With all the enhanced benefits of the new CT machine, DLSMC doctors can offer patients more diagnostic choices. And together with our affordable packages, we can provide our patients these services at cost-effective rates proving once again that quality healthcare need not be expensive.”
