One night last December, a 14-year-old schoolboy was brought to Northwestern Nghe An General Hospital in a serious condition after a traffic accident. In such a remote area where patients sometimes had to travel miles away for treatment, he was facing even graver danger.
However, with the help from GE’s 16-slice CT scanner, doctors and clinicians at Northwestern Nghe An General Hospital were able to provide timely and accurate diagnosis, ultimately saving his life. The doctors and technicians’ accounts are shared in the following video.
