A Chinese doctor working in Seychelles as a radiologist has gifted the Ministry of Health a medical book comprising imaging data of patient cases for teaching purpose.

Sun Zhanguo — author of the book ‘Seychelles Radiation Cases-Image Analysis and Diagnosis Essentials’ — told SNA that the absence of imaging data on common ailments in Seychelles has hampered the ability of local doctors to conduct in-depth research to find a possible cure.

The book details the history, distribution and treatment of common ailments in the Indian Ocean island nation and covers 400 diseases that are common in Seychelles. The book also contains more than 1,400 high definition images.

It was Danny Louange, the chief executive of the Seychelles Health Care Agency who, after learning about the database Sun was keeping, suggested that the Chinese radiologist write a manual book so as to provide diagnostic training for local staff.
