Patients at the Muhimbili National Hospital (MNH) who had to endure long waits for results of their imaging tests, such as X-ray and CT-scans, have a reason to smile following installation of high technology facility, which will shorten waiting time.
The new technology helps doctors to encode patients’ information through voice recognition, thus helping to transfer the details of a patient from a doctor’s voice to imaging experts for processing.
The voice recognition technology, which has been tested and applied on doctors at the MNH is a computer software program with the ability to decode human voice.
The MNH Executive Director, Prof Lawrence Museru told reporters on Monday that the new technology means that three steps have been reduced in processing of patients’ information.
“We can’t say, with certainty the time it would take, but it will definitely take a shorter time now to process the images,’’ said Prof Museru when briefing reporters on the new facility at the national hospital.
