The Heart to Heart Foundation donated Phillips Digital Subtraction Angiography (DSA) - the latest technique for diagnosing cardiovascular diseases to Da Nang General Hospital on March 31.
DSA is used in interventional radiology to clearly visualise blood vessels in a bony or dense soft tissue environment.

Director of the Da Nang Hospital Tran Ngoc Thanh said the new technique will enable clinicians to make more accurate diagnoses, improving treatment.

The hospital receives around 1.600 patients each day.

In Vietnam , 40 percent of the population dies from cardiovascular disease each year.-VNA
