FV introduces Anatomopathology services, shortening Diagnostic and Treatment time

In diagnosis, especially diagnosing diseases related to oncology, cell analysis and histopathology is indispensable in testing results. The anatomopathological testing is fundamental in providing conclusive and clear findings, and ensuring the correct prognosis and treatment. This form of analysis is known as anatomopathology. Understanding its importance, from February 2020, FV Hospital has introduced its own Anatomopathology Service. This service, part of FV’s Laboratory & Blood Bank Department, will conduct histological and cytological testing at the request of the hospital.

The anatomopathological testing is fundamental in providing conclusive and clear findings, and ensuring the correct prognosis and treatment.

The process of anatomopathological testing, involving; receiving, sampling specimens, dyeing slides, generating anatomopathological reports, and preserving specimens, will all be done within FV. In the hospital, on a case-by-case basis, anatomopathologists will provide consultations to ensure accurate diagnosis. Furthermore, as this service will be provided at FV Hospital, the need to send cases to Thailand for testing will decrease, ensuring that treatment costs and waiting times will decrease as well. FV will also be able to make a diagnosis and choose the right treatment at a much earlier stage. Moving forward therefore, the time from receiving demands to providing results will reduce from two weeks to three to seven days.

Dr KAHOUADJI Mohammed Nassim, working in FV’s Laboratory & Blood Bank Department, will manage the anatomopathology services for the hospital. Having more than 10 years of experience in anatomopathology and cytology in France, he is an expert in his field. In addition to their own extensive experience, Dr Kahouadji’s team of anatomopathologists are also able to consult with attending doctors and collaborate with external experts in the field of anatomopathology through digital pathology. These include; large hospitals in Vietnam and abroad, such as: Oncology Hospital, and HCG Cancer Care Centre (India), among others. All this ensures that FV’s anatomopathology services bring the most accurate results and optimal treatment plans to patients.

FV’s Laboratory & Blood Bank Department uses of modern equipment and the most advanced technology ensures it is able to conduct both urgent and routine tests for those who are being treated at the hospital, as well as for any patients wanting to take a blood test. Moreover, the Laboratory Department also works for medical centres and clinics which require quick and accurate testing results for their own cases. It is worth noting that FV is one of the few general hospitals whose Laboratory Department reaches international standards with JCI accreditation, ISO 15189:2012, and SIGMA VP 6 Certificate. Meeting such standards ensures that FV’s own testing results provided are as highly accurate as international laboratories across the world.

Dr KAHOUADJI Mohammed Nassim graduated from Tlemcen University in Medicine in Algeria, 2007. He went on to participate in specialized training courses in anatomopathology and cytology in France and Algeria.

Having more than 10 years of experience in anatomopathology and cytology in France, he is an expert in his field. Having worked in Gustave Roussy Cancer Institute, Paris, France (2011-2015); Foch Hospital, Suresnes, France (2015-2016); and Groupement Hospitalier de Territoire Grand Paris Nord-Est, France (2017-2019); Doctor KAHOUADJI Mohammed Nassim has acquired more than 10 years of experience and professional knowledge in anatomopathology and cytology as well as in treating inflamed and oncological diseases. At the end of 2019, Dr KAHOUADJI Mohammed Nassim joined FV Hospital and specialised in anatomopathology within FV’s Laboratory & Blood Bank Department.
