On April 5, CR and PACS products from Kodak began an eight-week mission into the Brazilian rain forest, supporting a multidisciplinary team determined to diagnose and treat contagious diseases that have become a threat to indigenous tribes of the remote Vale do Javari region of Brazil. The digital imaging solution provided by Kodak Health Imaging Group is compatible with ecological concerns regarding the Brazilian rain forest, which might be impacted by chemical film processing. The PACS will enable remote examination and diagnosis of members of isolated tribes and communities. Medical staff plan to acquire digital radiographs of 800 to 1000 tribe members, sending these images and accompanying medical reports via satellite to a state-of-the-art radiology clinic in southern Brazil. There, experts will advise the remote team. Primary concerns are infectious diseases such as hepatitis A, B, and Delta, yellow fever, malaria, and tuberculosis.
