TAIPEI, Taiwan -- Siemens Taiwan recently signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the Taipei Veterans General Hospital (TPE VGH, 臺北榮民總醫院), introducing cutting-edge quantitative imaging into the hospital's angiography room.
Under pressure from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Ministry of Health and Welfare, Siemens Taiwan said it has introduced the advanced one-stop medical imaging technology to TPE VGH.
Experiments conducted by experts from TPE VGH have shown that the time required to treat cardiovascular and cerebrovascular patients is shortened and the risks involved with the therapy are also decreased, improving medical treatment results and patients' safety.
Erdal Elver, president & CEO of Siemens Taiwan, said "Siemens has been rooted in Taiwan's medical domain for many years and dedicated itself to the trend of innovation to offer technological support to Taiwan's medical society.
In 2013, Siemens established the first Siemens International Cardiovascular Reference Center with a local hospital in Asia. By signing the agreement with VGH TPE, Siemens is setting another milestone to show the continuation of their commitment to Taiwan's medical field. Both parties will not only continue to deepen and strengthen the medical research domain, but also boost Taiwan's medical field to international standards of excellence."
