HIS HIGHNESS SHEIKH RASHID BIN HUMAID AL NUAIMI VISITS GMC HOSPITAL AJMAN TO OVERSEE ADDITION OF NEW FACILITIESNew advanced facilities added at GMC Hospital:

New Philips Achieva 1.5 Tesla MRI Scanner helps the doctors to diagnose the problem with more accuracy and will provide latest reports very fast. The MRI system helps to increase efficiency and obtain superb clinical results for diagnostics and therapy. Scanner can do whole body application for Neurology, Ortho imaging, Angiography, Body Imaging including MRCP, Breast imaging, Oncology, Cardiac Imaging including patented VCG (vector cardiogram) triggering and Pediatric Imaging. High channel count dedicated coils for superb quality & speed to achieve a complete diagnostic evaluation of the brain and spine in less than 20 minutes. The Scanner also offers advanced applications including Brain and Body Diffusion and perfusion as well as fiber tractography and Cardiac imaging.

HIS HIGHNESS SHEIKH RASHID BIN HUMAID AL NUAIMI VISITS GMC HOSPITAL AJMAN TO OVERSEE ADDITION OF NEW FACILITIESSIEMENS 128 Slice Perspective CT scanner: This is one of the newest high-end, state of the art CT scanners in the world. It has the most advanced innovative technologies that increase the diagnostic confidence while significantly reducing the patient’s dose boosting reliability and reproducibility.

HIS HIGHNESS SHEIKH RASHID BIN HUMAID AL NUAIMI VISITS GMC HOSPITAL AJMAN TO OVERSEE ADDITION OF NEW FACILITIESThe CT scanner integrates innovative technologies designed to cover routine imaging and also advanced applications in Trauma (including advanced 3D reconstruction), Cardiac (including screening calcium score and coronary CT Angiography) as well as Neurovascular imaging.HIS HIGHNESS SHEIKH RASHID BIN HUMAID AL NUAIMI VISITS GMC HOSPITAL AJMAN TO OVERSEE ADDITION OF NEW FACILITIES

The increased number of slices enables scanning of up to half a meter in 5 seconds at an ultrahigh resolution. This means that the time when patient holds his breath during the scan is very low. This is especially useful for very sick and elderly patients. Rapid full – body trauma imaging is possible without compromising on the image quality. Overall a faster scan translates to speedy diagnosis and shorter waiting time for patients and attendants.HIS HIGHNESS SHEIKH RASHID BIN HUMAID AL NUAIMI VISITS GMC HOSPITAL AJMAN TO OVERSEE ADDITION OF NEW FACILITIES

3D Mammography – A revolutionary approach to mammography
Fujifilm’s 3D Mammography creates 3D images by using two high resolution images taken from different angles. One of these images is a conventional 2D image. The images are presented on a special viewer. 3D images enable the internal anatomical breast structures to be identified more clear than in a 2D image sue to tissue separation and micro calcifications stratification with this system, it is expected that image interpretations is as quick  or even quicker than 2D mammography and false positives are reduced.

Services Offered in GMC Hospital Radiology Department:
The latest facilities include • Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) • 128 Slice Computed Tomography (MDCT Scan) • 4 D Ultrasound • Color Doppler • Digital Mammography • Bone Mineral Densitometry (DEXA BMD) • X Ray • OPG (Panorama-Cephalometry) and • Mobile X Ray. Highly trained and licensed professionals perform these imaging tests. Once the images are ready, they are reviewed and interpreted by a Certified Specialist Radiologist who reports the findings.

An Assessment Hall for OSCE/OSPE stations with modular furniture and movable partitions and monitored by CCTV, will be used for skills performance evaluation.

Prof. Gita Ashok Raj further said “We wish to encourage the acquisition of basic and advanced clinical skills/behaviors that are essential for continuing education and proficiency testing”. The Center will deliver resources that will support acquisition of clinical skills necessary for advanced practice roles, promote and reinforce interpersonal communication and team building. We will cultivate competent, confident and ethical practitioners, and extend the services of the Center in education and healthcare beyond our institution to regional healthcare practitioners and members of the community and establish C.A.S.H as a leading provider of quality health care, education and research in simulated settings.

Medical Simulation is the set-up, used for monitoring and review of a controlled medical event, designed to educate health care providers and broaden their experience in critical situations. Since simulations are completely staged and programmed as per the scenario, participants are able to make mistakes and learn from them without any risk to patients, and apply what they have learned in real life situations.

The Center will offer regular training courses in Basic clinical skills, Basic surgical skills, Acute Care Medical Simulations, Advanced Airway Management, Teamwork and Communication skills, Crisis Resource Management (CRM), First Aid, BLS /ATLS and Standardized OSCEs, concluded Prof. Manda Venkatramana. The center is an accredited provider of American Heart Association programs.
