Scientists have developed portable hand-held X-ray apparatus: direct skin fluoroscopy
on May 25, Beijing time, according to the British Daily Mail, doctors who are worried that patients are unwilling to adhere to the established course of treatment can rest assured. Scientists have recently invented a hand-held X-ray instrument that can help encourage patients to adhere to treatment
this instrument is called "anatonme", which is a small hand-held instrument, including a projector, digital camera and infrared camera, as well as a laser indicator. The projector can project six typical injury images stored in the computer in advance on the patient's skin, manikin or wall, so as to help the patient judge their own injury type and degree. The detailed image also includes the skeleton knot 4, the middle structure of the mortar tensile testing machine, muscle tissue, tendons and nervous system
doctors can check the progress of patients' rehabilitation through the images and videos taken by this device, and know whether they are using the correct rehabilitation methods for rehabilitation exercise every day. The infrared camera allows the doctor to "scribble" on the image with a laser indicator. In this way, doctors can quickly get an image and related documents for patients to take home
according to the researchers of Microsoft Corporation in the United States who developed this device, 30% - 50% of patients with chronic diseases will soon give up adhering to treatment
the team conducting this study was led by Tao Ni, Amy Karlson and Daniel Wigdor. They said they hoped that the advent of this device would help doctors encourage their patients to adhere to treatment when the processing rate reached about 27%
they also said that compared with traditional treatment methods, the use of such devices and large LCD screens made them feel more willing to treat and could provide more information for patients
Carlson from Microsoft Research said, "this is an interesting new field, because although various devices have made great progress, there is a relative lack of devices used to improve doctors' stiffness, which directly affects the stiffness of the system and the opportunities for face-to-face communication and communication between patients."
he said, "the best moment was when we directly projected the medical image on the patient's arms and feet. They said, wow! This is so cool! I saw through my skin! So we thought the patient seemed very surprised and satisfied that the pathological image could be directly displayed on his skin."
