At the same time, the advanced cancer therapy equipment is also introduced to assist patients in undergoing effective treatment.
As a Medical Center with 1,500 beds and comprehensive clinical services, Taipei Medical University Shuang-Ho Hospital is dedicated to developing medical technology. We have the most innovative equipment, including “ROSA ® robotic surgical system” for brain and spine surgery and “da Vinci robotic surgical system”for 7-division surgical procedures. We exploit cellular therapy and precision medicine. We devote every effort in the research and development of medical appliances to apply patent and technology transfer. With all the efforts and AI technology, Shuang-Ho Hospital is on the way to build a smart hospital.In this exhibition, we'll present how "Internet of Medical Things" and the "Early Personal Warning System of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease" can be integrated. Through wearable devices, respiratory and physiological data will be collected on site, and based on which, personalized respiratory checkup reports will be created automatically and offered to participants. This appliance demonstrates a perfect model of cooperation between artificial intelligence technologies and medical care.
Taipei Cancer Center at Taipei Medical University is Taiwan’s first cancer center providing comprehensive cancer services including cancer prevention, screening, diagnosis, treatment, long-term follow-up, and consultation.
Our multidisciplinary care team, led by expert cancer physicians includes nurses, pharmacists, nutritionists, social workers, psychologists, and other medical professionals, provides personalized care and treatment plans. With the assistance of the ArtificiaI Intelligence systems, Watson for Oncology and Watson for Genomics, the clinicians develop individualized cancer treatments with precision medicine for their patients.
Through the expertise of the internationally recognized Taipei Medical University Translation Research Center, we combine newly developed treatment plans and current therapies to maximize patient outcomes. In addition, the Taipei Cancer Center provides new and effective therapies for difficult-to-treat and late-stage cancer patients.
The Proton Center, to be completed in 2020, will provide fourth generation proton therapy with pencil-beam technology and cone-bean CT navigation. This new radiotherapy technology will greatly enhance the quality of medical care and outcomes for our patients with cancer.
Taipei Neuroscience Institute (TNI) was established in 2017 after the integration of all the departments of neurosurgery, neurology, neuroradiology, rehabilitation and psychiatry of the university’s three affiliated general hospitals in Taipei. We hope that through this integration we can promote our standard of practice in clinical neuroscience, improve our quality of clinical training and education, and enhance our research collaboration between clinicians and basic neuroscientists.
