Endoscopy was once known as the “gold standard” for clinical diagnosis of gastrointestinal mucosal diseases, but it is an invasive test for patients, especially not suitable for middle-aged and elderly people; ultrasonography cannot detect early gastric cancer; while digital dynamic DR requires less physical conditions for middle-aged and elderly people, and has many advantages such as wide application, clear imaging, convenient and efficient, and low side effects. It has many advantages such as wide application, clear imaging, convenient and efficient, and small side effects.
Digital Dynamic DR
With a 17×17-inch imaging area, Perlove’s multi-functional suspended digital dynamic DR can be used for gastrointestinal imaging, such as esophagus, stomach, small intestine, colon and other large imaging areas in one exposure. Capturing images of lesion sites with clear and rapid imaging greatly improves the detection rate of lesion examination and makes the diagnosis more accurate.
At the same time, the digital dynamic DR has real-time video image saving function, which is convenient for doctors to repeatedly observe and analyze, to clarify the scope of lesions, and to avoid missed diagnosis and misdiagnosis.
