Vitals Global Healthcare invests in new imaging equipment for Gozo General Hospital
Vitals Global Healthcare has invested €400,000 in a new endoscopic imaging suite to visualize the Gastro Intestinal tract and the Urinary System at VGH Gozo General Hospital.
The equipment includes gastroscopes, colonoscopes, nephroscopes, ureteroscopes and cystoscopes. The latest imaging technologies are embodied in these instruments and the image processing controllers that form part of the equipment package.
Dr Nadine Delicata, CEO of VGH Gozo General Hospital explained: “These instruments will enable specialists at VGH Gozo General Hospital to improve the quality of care offered to our patients, thanks to more accurate diagnosis and treatment options due to this enhanced technology, as well as improvements in safety and comfort for the patient. This is conducive to improved patient outcomes and decreased complication rates, thus improving patient quality of life, and reducing the need for further surgical procedures and need for re-intervention.”
The GI scopes provide outstanding HD+ megapixel resolution image clarity for improved visualization of the slightest mucosal detail. The endoscopes’ enhanced, second-generation HD+ megapixel resolution imaging sensors provide maximum image clarity for improved visualization. Close Focus technology enhances mucosal detail in the near field, which may help detect and differ- entiate subtle lesions assisting with definitive diagnosis and improving therapy outcomes.
“The success of a procedure hinges on the ability to clearly visualize the epithelial surface pit pattern and vascular pattern. The optical enhancement technology provided by these instruments creates a unique platform where both digital and optical enhancements are available. This enhances the endoscopist’s efforts to detect, identify and confirm,” Dr Delicata added.
The urology component of the equipment package will enable the direct optical visualization of all the structures in the urinary system. These instruments provide a channel to visualize, detect, diagnose and where applicable, treat lesions within the urinary system with ease and in safety.
These instruments contain flexible anatomical elements as well as rigid instruments and are designed to cause the least trauma possible to the tissues within the body.
