St George’s Hospital, London use the new TAMBA charts within ViewPoint
Tamba has launched it’s twin growth charts designed specifically with the unique growth rate and characteristics of twins in mind. By using these twin growth charts, clinicians can better diagnose significant growth restrictions rather than estimate foetal weight and any potential discrepancies. Incorrectly diagnosing twins as “too small” can not only cause anxiety for parents but can also result in babies being delivered too early.
The UK’s Tamba (Twins and Multiple Births Association) charity has found a way to help improve the chance of survival for these little ones by developing twin growth charts. The first ultrasound scan using the new TAMBA charts has been performed at St George’s Hospital, London. St George’s have been a long standing customer of HNC and user of the ViewPoint reporting system; ViewPoint is used within the department to electronically document and archive the ultrasound exam.
The new TAMBA twin charts are now available for use within the current releases of the ViewPoint software. Contact us to find out how to use the new charts within your ViewPoint system.
