Bernard Healthcare and the University of Yamanashi Hospital in Japan have organised an international seminar on "Application of Advanced Diagnostic Imaging in Early Cancer Screening'' in HCM City.

It was held within the framework of a strategic tie-up between the two specialized medical facilities.

Speaking at the seminar, Associate Professor Takuji Araki from the department of radiotherapy and diagnostic radiology at the University of Yamanashi Hospital, spoke about Ningen Dock, a Japanese health screening model.

“The advantage of the Ningen Dock model is that it helps screen and detect diseases early, treat promptly and cure diseases at an early stage, helping reduce the burden on patients and enabling them to live longer.”

In addition to traditional diagnostic tools such as ultrasound and x-ray, the Ningen Dock model also utilises advanced imaging diagnostics such as CT scan and MRI to help doctors detect several diseases in many organs.

They can also keep track of changes in the organs in the following years.

In Viet Nam, Bernard Healthcare is applying the Ningen Dock model for the screening and early diagnosis of cancer.

It has also signed a strategic agreement with the University of Yamanashi Hospital for direct professional connections, sharing and consulting on clinical cases.

Professor Hiroyuki Kinouchi, president of the University of Yamanashi Hospital, said Bernard Healthcare is a specialized medical system with many experienced doctors and specialists.

“The co-operation between the two sides started from a professional connection in imaging diagnosis, and I believe that in the future it will develop further in many fields, contributing to promoting Vietnam's healthcare system.”

Bernard Healthcare's diagnostic imaging area is set up right in the heart of the University of Yamanashi Hospital's Diagnostic Imaging Centre.

This is very meaningful as Bernard's patients and customers will save money and time when transferring to the University of Yamanashi Hospital for treatment.

The Japanese side also enables patients to get more opportunities for better diagnosis and treatment with other specialities. — VNS
