A local hospital is leading a national program to perform a detailed study of locally made ultrasonic machines and work out a guideline for their use.

Shanghai No.6 People’s Hospital hopes to work out a guideline to direct the purchase of such machines and their use in line with different levels of hospitals and different levels of medical demand.

Currently, the nation’s market is dominated by imported ultrasonic machines. With the improvement of domestic brands and the government’s encouragement to use domestically-made products, Shanghai No.6 People’s Hospital is heading the project, launched by the Ministry of Science and Technology. 

Domestic ultrasonic machines and their advantages and disadvantages will be specifically investigated in the study.

The project will study the demand of leading public hospitals and hospitals at the grassroots level to guide the practical purchase and usage of the machines. Meanwhile, training for professionals at the grassroots level is also offered.

“Ultrasonic checks don't merely depend on the machine — the skill and capability of the medical professional using it is also very important,” said Dr Hu Bing, director of the ultrasonic check department of Shanghai No.6 People’s Hospital. 

“Our hospital has teamed up with hospitals in the Yangtze Delta region to give long-distance diagnosis and training to help local patients receive high-quality service without leaving their home towns.”
