Blackburns Medical Equipment has revealed a new type of medical scanner that can scan patients in a hospital without the need for a staff member or patient card.
The scanner uses an infrared camera to look for bacteria, and a laser to generate an image of the patient’s lungs.
The system uses less than 10 minutes to scan a patient and costs around $100.
Blackburn’s medical equipment is the first in the UK to implement this technology.
Here’s how to scan using the laser scanner in hospitals and nursing homesBlackburn’s scanners can scan the patients using a wide range of equipment.
Black-light and infrared scanners can also be used to detect blood and other fluid.
Blackburns’ scanner is also able to scan air and oxygen, which can be used by healthcare workers to check on patients.
“It is very exciting to be able to use our technology in hospitals for the first time, which will allow us to give people a more efficient way to check if they have tuberculosis,” Blackburn said.
“We are looking forward to working with other healthcare providers in the coming months to develop and deliver the first use cases of the technology to patients.”
The Blackburn scanners have been tested in a pilot programme with a group of primary care staff at the Royal Hospital for Royal Staffordshire, in Kent.
It will be used in the next stage of a larger pilot project.
Black-light scanners and infrared scanning are also used by doctors to check for respiratory infections.
“With the new scanners we will be able for the very first time to scan patients at home, and we believe this will help us to identify more people who are at risk of developing tuberculosis, as well as help us provide better patient care,” Blackwell said.
Blackwell said the Blackburn scanner would allow patients to get a more accurate look at the lungs.
“When you go to see a lung specialist, they can see a picture of the lungs and they can also see the cells of the lung,” he said.
