An EOS imaging system has been installed at the Medic Medical Center (MMC) in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. The MMC is the largest radiologic centre and medical clinic in Vietnam, and the installation of the system at the centre represents the expansion of EOS imaging’s market presence into South East Asia.
MMC is Vietnam’s most active medical facility in terms of patient volume, providing service to more than 1,000 patients per day, and offers a wide range of specialised services, such as paediatrics, endocrinology, cardiology and neurology. Its network of facilities provides medical services in numerous provinces throughout the country but also in Laos and Cambodia.
Phan Thanh Hai, director of the Medic Medical Center at Ho Chi Minh City, says: “As one of the largest medical centres in Vietnam, we must continually seek out proven technologies that will help provide our physicians with the best diagnostic information and our patients with the best treatment outcomes. Our decision to add the EOS system’s low dose 2D/3D imaging satisfies both of those objectives and enables our hospital to continue operating as one of Vietnam’s premier medical facilities.”
The EOS system provides full-body images of patients in a natural functional position in both 2D and 3D with 50% to 85% less dose than digital radiology and 95% less dose than basic CT scans, in accordance with the ALARA (As Low As Reasonably Achievable) principle of radiation reduction.
