HCM CITY — Chợ Rẫy Hospital in HCM City in the last year has applied a number of  advanced techniques in diagnosis and treatment, including organ transplans and PET/CT scans, according to the hospital director Nguyễn Trường Sơn.

The hospital conducted research on kidney transplants from non-heart beating donors, a national research assigned by the Ministry of Science and Technology.

“It has brought great scientific value and benefit to the country’s organ transplant system, Sơn said at the hospital’s annual scientific symposium, held yesterday in HCM City.

Over the last year, the hospital has used positron emission tomography and computed tomography (PET/CT) scans to plan radiation therapy as well as microwave ablation (MWA) technique to destroy liver tumours and diagnostic accuracy of [99mTc] TRODAT-1 SPECT imaging in early Parkinson’s disease, among other advanced techniques.

At the symposium, leading professors and physicians from Chợ Rẫy hospital and other hospitals in the southern region, along with Japanese counterparts, made 160 presentations in various specialties, including resuscitation emergency, grammatology and orthopedics, neurology, otorhinolaryngology, urology and oncology. —VNS
