Tam Anh Hospital in Ho Chi Minh City is now equipped with a 1975-slice CT scanner system that utilizes integrated AI technology to enhance the assessment of stroke and cancer cases. This advanced imaging system offers a scanning speed of 0.23 seconds per time resolution of 19.5 milliseconds, making it capable of detecting lesions as small as 0.23 mm. It can identify atherosclerotic plaques, blood clots, narrow blockages, brain aneurysms, tumors, stones or small lesions at an early stage. The Smart Stroke software and AI processing solutions help reduce the time needed for image capture, processing and result interpretation.

Dr. Ho Hoang Phuong, the Director of the Center for Diagnostic Imaging and Interventional Radiology at Tam Anh General Hospital emphasized that the modern CT system provides highly accurate images with better description, clear boundaries between damaged and healthy tissues and precise detection of small abnormalities for accurate diagnoses.
