H+ Yang Ji Hospital in Seoul was designated as Korea's first SIRCAT, Shimadzu Innovation Research Center of Angiography Technology, organized by Japan's major medical device manufacturer Shimadzu.
There was a ceremony for the designation of H+ Yang Ji Hospital as the center a ceremony with DK Medical Solution (medical image equipment manufacturer), a partner company of Shimadzu in Korea at COEX on Mar. 14. The event was attended by more than 100 people including the Hospital Director Sang-il Kim of H+ Yang Ji Hospital, CEO Jun-hyeok Lee of DK Medical Solution, and the executives and the staff of the hospital.
H+ Yang Ji Hospital recently introduced Shimadzu's angiography equipment, Trinias, for the treatment and research of various angiopathies such as coronary arteries which are causes of ischemic heart disease (angina, myocardial infarction), peripheral blood vessels, and carotid arteriosclerotic stenosis. Therefore, with H + Yang Ji Hospital being appointed as SIRCAT, a more advanced cardiovascular treatment system was established by installing the hospital's cardiovascular disease diagnosis and treatment technology and the best intervention hardware in Japan.
Trinias, a 150-year-old equipment developed by Shimadzu, is known to dramatically shorten the contrast media usage, patient exposures, and procedure time. Also, it is equipped with Shimadzu's patent RSM (Real-time Smoothed Mask imaging), which is a real-time DSA technology for observing detailed blood vessel state while maintaining landmark, and it makes precise clinical diagnosis and procedure for cardiovascular diseases.
The Hospital Director Sang-il Kim of H+ Yang Ji Hospital said, "We are expecting that the latest advanced angiographic imaging technology of Shimadzu will be introduced for the first time in Korea with this opportunity, and we will be able to perform more precise angioplasty and medical treatment by meeting the high operation ability of the cardiovascular center and the angioplasty center of H+ Yang Ji Hospital. In the future, we will grow into a futuristic and innovative hospital model by strengthening our continuous research and expertise with core competencies like top medical equipment and high-quality medical staff."
H+ Yang ji Hospital will collaborate with DK Medical Solution to carry out clinical research using Trinias' latest technology at the same time and to announce research results by organizing Korea/Japan SIRCAT International Symposium'at the same time.
