The university, which opens its new Advanced Imaging Training Centre today will offer technical and hands-on training with GE’s Enterprise Imaging Software such as Centricity TM Universal Viewer and Advanced Visualisation.

Centricity TM Solutions for Enterprise Imaging delivers comprehensive reading across hospitals, reporting and collaboration across care pathways to help improve clinical efficiency and drive enhanced patient outcomes.

The opening of the centre is a milestone for the university and signifies a step up in the future of healthcare in Vietnam.

Pham Ngoc Thach University will be a first-mover in the country, offering education around enterprise imaging solutions in Vietnam, and elevating the current traditional textbook model of teaching to include hands-on digital experience.

In addition, training will be open to qualified clinicians from across the country who are looking to upskill themselves through specialist and master programmes, and Continuing Medical Education (CME) courses.

“In the last few decades, the landscape of radiology has changed dramatically. Advances in imaging technology have made medical images increasingly detailed and informative. The traditional concept of practicing radiology with film is gradually becoming outdated," said Professor Ngo Minh Xuan, MD., PhD, rector of Pham Ngoc Thach University of Medicine. "Qualified radiologists and advanced diagnostic imaging training courses are particularly needed in Vietnam where imaging equipment and facilities are distributed all over the country, from communes to districts, provincial and central locations. Learning how to use technology will ensure better clinical outcomes starting from administering the scan to the diagnosis”

GE Healthcare’s Centricity TM Universal Viewer features a single image repository across 2D and 3D studies generated by X-Ray Systems, Computed Tomography, Magnetic Resonance Imaging, Ultrasound and more, across all providers in the healthcare system.

Workload management tools and access to images from multiple care areas from a single desktop increases clinical collaboration and productivity. It allows clinicians to fuse MRI images with other scans and improve diagnostic accuracy.

Another powerful benefit is the processing of dynamic or functional scans to show changes caused by a disease over time, providing a complete view of the patient’s medical history. Radiologists, clinicians and radiographers will be able to learn and practice the processing and interpreting of complex cases.
