The introduction of the “Thousand Counties Project” policy has enabled many county-level hospitals to begin to move toward the medical service capacity of tertiary hospitals.
The so-called “Thousand Counties Project” is a county-level public hospital capacity enhancement program initiated by the National Health and Health Commission, with the goal that by 2025, at least 1,000 county hospitals across the country will reach the level of tertiary hospitals’ medical service capacity.
It is not easy for county hospitals to be promoted to a tertiary hospital. There are mandatory requirements for the number of beds, the number of equipments, and the ratio of beds to nurses, etc., and medical services and management, medical quality and safety, and technological level and efficiency are all within the scope of the assessment. If you want to know the specific conditions for ascending to a tertiary hospital, you can refer to the “Tertiary Hospital Accreditation Standards (2020 Edition) Implementation Rules” issued by the National Health Commission.
Among the ten major tasks of the “Thousand Counties Project” is the “continuous improvement of hardware conditions”, with the goal of “gradually improving the conditions of hardware facilities and equipment in accordance with the needs of county residents for medical treatment….” The construction of medical equipment is obviously an important part of the capacity building of county hospitals.
As an important part of the capacity building of county hospitals, the importance of medical imaging department construction is self-evident. Under the requirements of precision diagnosis and evidence-based medicine, the value of imaging information for disease diagnosis and treatment is increasingly important today, including ultrasound imaging equipment, X-ray imaging equipment, CT, MRI, C-arm, DSA, PET-CT, etc., which provide precise diagnosis and treatment services for clinical diagnosis and treatment in county hospitals.
Among them, digital radiography equipment (DR) is essential. Due to the short scanning time, low radiation dose, high degree of compliance, and economical applicability of radiography, it is still the first inspection equipment for disease screening in county medical care.
With the development and advancement of flat panel detector technology, the functions of DR equipment have been enriched. Flat-panel dynamic DR relies on visualization of high-speed high-definition pointing function, changed the traditional blind shooting mode, in the clinic to improve the detection rate of lesions, reduce the leakage of diagnosis and misdiagnosis, more and more recognized by the market.
PLX8600 is a large field of view U-shaped arm flat-panel dynamic DR, with an effective field of view of 17*34cm, realizing one-time imaging without splicing, one-time coverage of the whole spine or double lower extremity images. In addition to conventional static photography, PLX8600 is also equipped with dynamic fluoroscopy and spot film functions, which can effectively capture key frames when observing complex parts of the lesions and reduce the probability of patients taking multiple films. In the evaluation of total spine status, long bone and joint mobility, lower extremity venography valve function evaluation, digestive tract function evaluation, spinal myelography and other large-view clinical applications, the domestic flat-panel dynamic DR equipment PLX8600 is able to play a more valuable role.
