Technology always provides us with what is new and useful. It facilitates our life and comforts us. In the field of medicine, you can find that modern technology is the main reason for the progress of medicine and helping sick people to be better. Thanks to modern technology, the rate of healthy people increased. Among the most useful modern technological devices that are used now in examining sick people are Diagnostic Cameras. These cameras are used for examining patients and showing the internal part of their bodies. Some of the diagnostic cameras are very small to the extent that hey can be swallowed. The others are larger in size but can be easily carried. We present here some of the diagnostic cameras that are really efficient.
Pill Camera: From its name, you will find that it is a tiny camera that is in the same size of a capsule. This camera is known by many names such as Wireless Capsule Endoscopy, Video Capsule and pill camera. The Video Capsule is small in size 11 x 26 mm and very light in weight only 4 gms. The capsule is provided with a battery for consuming power, four LED lights, radiofrequency transmitter which is wireless and a colored video camera to take colored images. The camera has the ability to take 50,000 colored images during its existence in the patient’s body. The capsule is carefully designed and made of specific materials to overcome enzymes and stomach acid. The capsule starts working by being swallowed with some water like any pill. It stays in the body for 8 hours and during that time it takes photos that are sent to antenna pads which are stuck on the patient’s body. Then, a recording device that is placed on the patient’s waist receives images to be recorded. After 8 hours the doctor takes the recording device and transmits the images on it to a computer work station that transforms them to a digital movie for the doctor to see.
There is another kind of diagnostic cameras that are used for telemedicine. They are small in size and light .They can be easily hold in hand and they are easy to be operated. They do not need large amount of power.The images that are taken by these cameras are clear and with high resolution. They are better than standard definition cameras. They are used for diagnosing the external part of the patients body. These cameras will not only help physicians to easily diagnose diseases, but they will also help patient to save their money and time by consulting doctors while they are in their places by sending images and videos that can be easily examined by doctors and thus the disease can be diagnosed accurately.
Finally, these diagnostic cameras will help physicians to easily examine their patients and to diagnose diseases easily and accurately without the need of taking much time or consuming money on several devices. The clarity of the images and the high resolution are the most things that make these devices better than the other used devices. The process of consulting doctors will be easier than it was before.
