Vi­tals Global Health­care in­vests in new imag­ing equip­ment for Gozo Gen­eral Hos­pi­tal

The Malta Independent on Sunday - - BUSINESS & FINANCE -

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.
