NTL was invited for a seminar of Telecervicography in Vietnam
The chairman of NTL, Mr. Shin had a seminar in Vietnamese GY&OB conference at the most prestigious hospital in Vietnam, National center hospital.
This seminar was held as NTL exported Telecervicography system to Vietnam. Telecervicography is one of cervical cancer screening method which takes enlarged images of cervix and evaluate the current status of cervix. Back in the past, Cervicography (Analog version of Telecervicography) took more than 7 days for evaluation however NTL adopted Telemedicine system to Cervicography and became Telecervicography. Consequently evaluation time got shortened to 24hr even in low-resource setting area.
Mr. Shin said “Its sensitivity is 92% and when Telecervicography is combined with Pap smear, sensitivity increases up to 98%. I sincerely hope that the incidence rate of cervical cancer in Vietnam decreases with the aid of Telecervicography.”
In Korea, Telecervicography is being used in Yonsei university hospital, Korea university hospital, Pusan university hospital, and other major hospitals.
