Benefits of a Digital Microscope January 07 2015
Digital Microscopes have become increasingly popular in the medical industry. With unlimited applications of use, medical professionals of all specialties are adding this unique item to their practice.
ENT Specialists use Digital Otoscopes to display vivid images of the outer and middle ear with optional measuring capabilities. ENT’s have found that showing the patient on screen and pointing out problem areas allows them construct better treatment plans with greater patient knowledge. When looking into a patient’s ear with a standard otoscope, the patient cannot see what the Doctor sees. Projecting the image on a wall screen or computer makes a physicians diagnosis explanation much easier and much more informative to the patient. Dermatologists enjoy similar applications while providing a full range of mobility to scan skin and hard to reach areas of the body. A patient cannot see a wart or lesion located on their back. A Digital Microscope not only gives the patient a chance to see what is going on, but also a much closer look. Digital Microscopes can magnify up to 220x (on select models).
Even teachers are enjoying the benefits of a Digital Eyepiece Camera, giving them the ability to show the entire class what can be seen through the eyepiece versus one at a time viewing. They can turn their standard classroom microscope into a Digital Microscope for the whole class to see.
DinoLite Digital Microscopes are offered in a variety of different configurations. A detachable cap for easy slide-on accessories or an optional polarizer to reduce glare and reflections on the surface of an object, are just a couple of options to choose from. Each Dinolite Digital Microscope ships complete with the DinoCapture Software, an easy-to-use solution for storing images and videos and uploading to patient records for future reference (based on your EMR system’s capabilities).
