DTU Researchers Win First Prize in IT at Viet Nam Talent Awards 2017

At the Viet Nam Talent Awards 2017 held at Hanoi's Vietnam-Soviet Friendship Labour Cultural Palace on November 16th, Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc awarded the  only first prize in IT category for the application entitled “Using 3D Virtual Reality Technology to Simulate the Human body for Health science Education and Research” developed by DTU researchers. The Viet Nam Talent Awards 2017, the 13th edition so far, were initiated by the Viet Nam Association for Promoting Education. Jointly held by Dantri newspaper and the Vietnam Posts & Telecommunications Group (VNPT), the Award has become nationally recognized to honor persons whose products and academic work benefit society.

The Vietnam Talent Award 2017 carries the theme of "Creative Technology, Smart Connect", aiming to bolster the creative industry throughout the country in the context of the 4.0 industrial revolution. 
289 products were presented at this year’s contest. There were three sub-categories of the IT Award this year; Applied Products for Mobile Devices, Potential Products and Start-up IT Products. The only first award of 100 million vnd was given to DTU product “3D human body simulator”, developed by DTU lecturers Dr. Le Nguyen Bao, Le Van Chung, Trinh Hiep Hoa, Le Khac Trieu Hung, Nguyen Luong Tho, Nguyen Minh Duc and Le Hoang Quoc Bao.  
The applications developed by DTU have been highly praised for their positive contribution to the teaching of medicine. In particular, the development of a 3D Anatomical Simulation Technology application has almost been completed. It models human systems and organs, including simulations of the skeleton, muscles, vascular system and heart, the nervous system and brain, the respiratory system, the digestive system, the excretory and reproductive systems, glands and nodes. 3,924 simulations have been developed to model exact Vietnamese anatomical characteristics.

DTU researchers and their application
Leading lectures at medical universities and big hospitals in Vietnam have examined, evaluated and confirmed the accuracy of the application, which is quite unique compared with many of the other simulation products currently available around the world. The application teaches students how to visualize each organ and specific anatomical details, allowing direct interaction by rotating, hiding, displaying, moving and marking using a 3D projector, 3D glasses or virtual reality glasses, such as Oculus Rift, Gear VR, HTC Vive, or by using a desktop or handheld computer, running on Windows, Mac, or Linux, or through a smartphone and tablet, running on an Android or iOS operating system.
The application has eliminated the “empty-handed” teaching that existed in several medical schools and educational institutions. The students visualize the human body from different angles, to learn more thoroughly and prepare themselves for their future professions. It comes with a built-in anatomical course based on the anatomical programs of foreign universities, including SUNY (the State University of New York) and Purdue. The course allows the lecturer and student alike to create their own lesson plans and case studies, tailored to different study objectives. Students can view sample documentation in English, Vietnamese or Latin to broaden their knowledge.
Representating for DTU team, Mr. Le Van Chung said: “We worked on our project for five years aiming to improve medical education. The application has been applied in the teaching of health sciences at DTU for over one year and we are so happy to receive much a positive feedback from lecturers & students. The award we won has become the very driving-force for us to continue developing more real-life  applications to benefit society.”
