Whether originated from a smart phone, video camera, digital SLR, 3D scanner or dedicated medical imaging device, medical photographs are taken as a visual arrangement of pixels which record a subject, material or event in time. Our Medical Photographers explore the latest capture options and cost implications, then provide example images so enabling client’s to make informed decisions.
Whether purchased or leased, equipment selection also considers the accuracy and consistency of capture, in addition to the implications introduced by user ability and patient condition. Once finalized, imaging systems are calibrated to industry colour/spatial standards and optimum settings are fixed for both image accuracy and data consistency. Each system is calibrated prior to shipment and validated at the site prior to recruitment commencing, the resultant audit trail documents each system from construction to study close-out or system destruction.
