MFU Wellness Center, in collaboration with FUJIFILM, conducted physical check-ups for people in remote areas of Chiang Rai, including Ban Laolew and Ban Pangmahan, during 25-26 June 2022. The examinations were undertaken with the aim of promoting proactive health without charging, thereby contributing to prevention, diagnosis and treatment for hill tribes and stateless minorities and extending access to basic healthcare services to them.
FUJIFILM brought its “FDR Xair” medical innovation to support the proactive health screening for Tuberculosis (TB). The compact (3.5 kg) portable digital X-ray unit improves medical check-up outreach for TB and pulmonary-related disease patients in geographically remote areas that X-ray vans cannot access. FUJIFILM’S professional use ATKs were utilised to support the event. ATK is capable of detecting even minimal amounts of virus with high accuracy.
FUJIFILM commits to resolving social issues through unceasing development of innovations and technologies as reflected in its “NEVER STOP” corporate campaign promoting health in Thai society.
