Resonandina - Mobile MRI Solution

Mobile MRI Solution in El Alto, Bolivia

El Alto, located on the Altiplano highlands of Bolivia, is one of the highest major cities in the world. Around one million inhabitants live at 4.000 meters above sea level, just above the capital city La Paz. While it is among the most populous urban area of Bolivia, it also has many geographical challenges due to the harsh landscape and environment. These challenges are exactly the type of conditions where Resonandina was able to create the perfect solution for professional healthcare.

Collaboration with Hospital Arco Iris (HAI) and Hospital Holandes (HH)

Because the El Alto region has a fast-growing population there is an extended need for professional healthcare and thereby professional medical equipment. Resonandina collaborated with the Hospital Arco Iris (HAI) and Hospital Holandes from the city La Paz to meet the demands of El Alto by initiating a project for high-end diagnostic facilities.

Mobile MRI Solution

Using Resonandina's Mobile Solution the logistic and structural challenges where met. The now fully operating trailer consists of the following equipment:

-1,5 Tesla MRI (Siemens Essenza)
-Air-conditioning and chiller system
-Electrical Generator (140 KvA) to function independently.
-WIFI Connection (4G)

Completing an MRI service at 2 locations made it possible to help more than 3.000 patients until 2016. Since 2017 the MRI service can serve up to 250 patients a week; a more than 50% growth.

RisPacs of Medspazio

Counting on a high-end RisPacs system developed by Medspazio the service is no longer ‘location-dependent’. Through a WIFI connection results are distributed to hospitals, medical specialists and if needed to radiologic experts around the world for a ‘second-opinion’. Patients receive their digital imaging personally to share with their doctors to consult further treatments.
