-- Nuffield Health Wolverhampton Hospital has recently invested in state-of-the-
art equipment from PENTAX Medical to enhance its cancer detection and enable earlier treatment which can improve patient outcomes. The hospital, one of 31 Nuffield Health hospitals, the largest UK health charity, will re-equip its departments with the most advanced flexible endoscopes on the market: these are flexible cameras that are inserted into the stomach, digestive tract and bladder to help detect and diagnose cancer.
PENTAX Medical has been providing the hospital with its cutting-edge endoscopy equipment for just over six months and is world-renowned for the quality, reliability, innovation and simplicity of its products. The continued investment in PENTAX’s, high-definition HD+ endoscopes by the Nuffield Wolverhampton Hospital will ensure that its patients are provided with the best possible care.
PENTAX Medical has also designed a revolutionary ‘i-scan’ imaging technology that can also be used alongside the endoscopes to improve the images of the tissue lining the stomach, intestines and bladder. Getting a better image inside a patient means cancer can be detected earlier, before it reaches a serious stage, and treatment can begin early to improve a patient’s chance of recovery.
Many leading doctors already trust PENTAX’s endoscopes to improve the detection and diagnosis of tissue abnormalities1. According to David Moore, Managing Director, PENTAX UK Ltd. “By choosing the most technologically advanced endoscopy products on the market, the Nuffield Wolverhampton Hospital will be able to offer its patients much faster cancer detection rates and treatment turnaround times.”
Tony Avery, Hospital Director at Nuffield Health Wolverhampton Hospital said, “We are delighted to have received this significant investment which has allowed us to purchase state-of-the-
art equipment allowing the hospital’s consultants to deliver the best clinical care to our patients.”
