Top Woking Hospital to improve disease detection by purchasing cutting-edge imaging technology
Nuffield Health Woking Hospital invests £200,000 in high definition HD+ endoscopes from PENTAX Medical
PENTAX Medical has been providing some Nuffield hospitals with its cutting-edge endoscopy equipment for over 15 years and is world-renowned for the quality, reliability, innovation and simplicity of its products. The new investment in PENTAX’s, high-definition HD+ endoscopes by Nuffield Health Woking Hospital will ensure that its patients are provided with the best possible diagnosis and care.
PENTAX Medical has also designed a revolutionary ‘i-scan’ imaging technology that is used alongside the HD+ endoscopes to improve the images of the tissue lining in the stomach, intestines and bladder. Getting a better image inside a patient means cancer and other diseases can be detected earlier, before reaching a serious stage, meaning 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 that offer such exceptionally high image resolution, vwnoo compared to standard endoscopes, Nuffield Health Woking Hospital will be able to offer its patients significantly higher detection rates for cancers and other diseases, as well as enabling faster treatment turnaround times.”
Monnik Vleugels, Hospital Director at Nuffield Health Woking Hospital said,
“This really is a superb system. Consultants rate the ease of use and the outstanding image quality. Through these high definition HD+ images they can be assured that the best endoscopic image resolution is available for their patients, ensuring any abnormality can be detected and treated at the earliest possible opportunity.”
