Medical Excellence Japan (MEJ), along with Toshiba Medical Systems (TMSC), has established Russia-Japan cardiac imaging training center, which will provide services to improve cardiac diagnostic imaging in Russia.
The training centre was formed in cooperation with I.M. Sechenov First Moscow State Medical University and A.L. Myasnikov Institute of Clinical Cardiology.
The firms have established and take the responsibility for the operations of the training centre, based on a basic agreement signed in October 2014 and a contract signed with Russia in January this year.
Japanese diagnostic imaging systems will be provided at the training center, which will be used to improve cardiac diagnostic imaging and treatment in Russia.
The program will also provide continuous medical education (CME) for Russian physicians to enhance skills in diagnostic imaging.
MEJ will send a Japanese physician to the center as a trainer, while TMSC will provide medical diagnostic imaging systems that are required for early diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular diseases to local medical institutions.
