After that, Dr. Zhang elaborated how Hinacom telemedicine technology helped him carry out the multilateral telemedicine service, leveraging medical resources and optimizing efficiency in the country. He briefed the case of Jincheng City Central Hospital in Shanxi Province, China, a patient with complex cardiovascular disease was diagnosed through the Internet from Beijing. He also highlighted the success story of himself using Hinacom mobile imaging system for diagnosing an emergency heart patient. Both cases demonstrated that medical imaging service can be fully carried out through the Internet. At last, Dr. Zhang introduced Hinacom’s latest innovation in cardiology imaging: the intelligent imaging analysis and treatment planning system for thoracic aortic dissection, abdominal aortic aneurysm and TAVI applications. The leaders were giving high applause to Dr. Zhang’s speech. Recent years, Kazakhstan possesses a high incidence of aortic disease due to a large population of high blood pressure. They believed that this application can bring convenience to clinical practice and improve diagnosis and treatment quality.
