????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????Mindray, Mahway, NJ, was recently selected for the American Society of Echocardiography Foundation’s (ASEF) humanitarian mission in Hanoi, Vietnam, held August 17-22, 2015.

According to Mindray, the company was chosen as the exclusive partner for the mission because of its rugged, compact, fully featured echocardiography solution and the ability to pull together global support resources.

The ASE Foundation’s program consisted of multiple events, including hands-on training at the Vietnam National Heart Institute at the Bach Mai Hospital, an educational symposium for clinicians based in local provinces, training of local healthcare providers, and a village screening program with more than 200 patients. The event was led by Jose Banchs, MD, University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, and James N. Kirkpatrick, MD, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia.

One of the key goals of the program was to teach local clinicians how to properly acquire cardiovascular images and utilize compact echo solutions in resource poor areas. Mindray provided six M7 portable cardiac ultrasound systems to the Vietnam National Heart Institute to support the training and clinical programs.
