Showcasing innovation at RCOG 2016

The Royal College of Obstetricians & Gynaecologists (RCOG)’s World Congress 2016 saw more than 2,000 obstetricians and gynaecology (O&G) professionals gather to learn about the latest technologies and clinical techniques in the field.

For our team at DP Medical, the event – held 20-22 June 2016 – provided a great chance to showcase the products and equipment we supply to the sector, as well as the opportunity to network with some of the leading names in the field of O&G.

The congress provided an engaging programme of speakers, too, including Dr Pierre Martin-Hirsch, Consultant Gynaecological Oncologist and Gynaecologist at Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

Dr Martin-Hirsch delivered a presentation about the new technologies available within colposcopy, and included some excellent clinical data about one of the products we’re proud to offer our customers – the Zedscan cervical screening device by Zilico.























The hand-held device, which uses Electrical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS), analyses tissue structure and identifies pre-cancerous and cancerous cells in women suspected of having cervical neoplasia following an abnormal cervical smear test.

Results are immediately displayed on the handset, enabling the clinician to make decisions about the management of the patient at the first visit.

Following Dr Martin-Hirsch’s presentation, our team welcomed a number of RCOG delegates to our stand, who were keen to learn more about the device.

1,000 patient case study published for ZedScan™


A 1,000 patient case study for cervical cancer diagnostic system, ZedScan™, has been published.
The patient review in to the routine use of ZedScan as an adjunct to colposcopy has revealed that the technology significantly increases the rate of detection of high grade cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (HG CIN).
Clinicians at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust’s colposcopy clinic are routinely using ZedScan alongside colposcopy. They assessed the impact of ZedScan on the patient pathway over a period of 18 months for women referred with abnormal cytology.
The data revealed that from a total of 1,052 women examined, an increase of 12.4% in the detection of high grade cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (HG CIN) was demonstrated following the introduction of ZedScan into routine use.
There was also a marked increase (57.4%) in the number of cases of high grade disease detected in women referred with mild or borderline abnormalities.
Benefits in patient management were also evident with the rate of treatment at first visit (‘See and Treat’), increasing from 36-39% in previous years to 61% of all high grade referrals; high grade disease was confirmed in 97.7% of the cases.
The case study concludes that adoption of ZedScan has created opportunities for more efficient use of resources by offering ”See and Treat” as well as providing the reassurance to release women without disease to routine surveillance and reducing the need for further follow up.

Middle East success for MediScan

Executives from DP Medical Systems have returned from a successful trip to Arab Health 2016 – the biggest healthcare exhibition and congress in the Middle East and North Africa.
As part of the visit, DP Medical’s Commercial Director Owen Pemberton was invited by the Government’s trade arm UK Trade & Investment to provide a presentation to buyers from across the region at an event called ‘Meet the Buyers’.
The presentation, which took place at the Ballroom of The Emirates Tower, focused on DP Medical’s MediScan – an innovative capture and archive system for gynaecological examinations.
As well as the ‘Meet the Buyers’ event, DP Medical executives visited the Arab Health show in Dubai to meet with potential distributors and other experts from the region. It was also an opportunity to meet with suppliers from France, Germany, Holland and USA, who were exhibiting at the event.
Owen Pemberton said: “The Middle East region continues to invest heavily in its healthcare infrastructure and there is a clear ambition to develop the best possible facilities for patients and clinicians.
“We believe that the quality and potential of MediScan – which has been confirmed by feedback from key opinion leaders across the globe – fits in to the agenda of modern and world-leading healthcare systems.
“We enjoyed a very productive visit to Dubai – both the Meet the Buyers event and Arab Health – and now look forward to building on the excellent contacts we made from across the region.”

DP Medical Shortlisted for healthcare industry award


DP Medical Systems Ltd has been shortlisted in the Partnership with the NHS category at the South East Healthcare Technologies Alliance (SEHTA) Awards.


The company has been shortlisted for its project with Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust, which has seen DP Medical provide a networked image capture system for gynaecological examinations.


The Technology – MediScan – is used across the NHS Trust to capture still images in real-time and stored against a patient’s record for retrieval anywhere in the Trust’s three hospital sites – Royal Free, Barnet and Chase Farm

The system will be used for multiple purposes – with the primary use for colposcopy examinations designed to diagnose serious disease such as cervical cancer.


The Awards ceremony, which partners with Kent Surrey Sussex Academic Heath Science Network’s Expo, will take place on Tuesday 19 January at the Lancaster Hotel, London.


Owen Pemberton, Commercial Director at DP Medical Systems Ltd, said: “The project with Royal Free provides the perfect blueprint for how to work with the NHS. We have developed a really strong relationship with the staff which has allowed us to better understand exactly what they – and ultimately the patients – need.


“We’re delighted to be shortlisted for this award as it highlights the outstanding effort put in by a number of people – and we now keep our fingers crossed for the ceremony later this month.”


Winners of the SEHTA Awards will be put forward for the prestigious national Medilink UK Awards in April.




Central Manchester NHS Trust adopts ZedScan™

Central Manchester NHS Trust adopts ZedScan™

DP Medical Systems Ltd has secured a deal with Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (CMFT) to adopt ZedScan™ as part of its cervical cancer care pathway.


The Trust has introduced ZedScan into the Gynaecology department at Saint Mary’s Hospital, Manchester – a centre of excellence in the field of gynaecological oncology, uro-gynaecology and reproductive medicine.


ZedScan™ can measure and detect tissue changes in women identified with an abnormal smear test.


The system offers real-time and more accurate detection of pre-cancerous cells than standard colposcopy, enabling clinicians to make better-informed decisions at a patient’s first visit.


It means appropriate treatment can offered immediately to women identified with severe abnormalities or reassurance swiftly provided to patients with no evidence of disease, whilst also reducing the number of biopsies required.


ZedScan, which is available to hospital trusts through a number of purchasing routes including the NHS Supply Chain, was the subject of a Medtech Innovation Briefing published by the National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) in 2014.


The system is also currently undergoing evaluation at hospital sites through the country, many of which are being led by key opinion leaders from the field of gynaecology and obstetrics.


Dr Ursula Winters, Consultant Gynaecologist and lead consultant for colposcopy at Saint Mary’s, said: “ The introduction of ZedScan will provide us with the ability to assess women presenting with abnormal cervical smears more quickly and accurately.


“Having access to the latest in advanced diagnostic technologies such as ZedScan means we can offer our patients efficient and rapid access to appropriate treatments when they need them.”


The system, which comprises of a handheld device, software and disposable sensors, was developed by Manchester-based Zilico Ltd.


ZedScan utilises Zilico’s patented Electrical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS) technology to improve the ability to detect cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) following an abnormal cytology result, increasing diagnostic accuracy.

EIS exploits the different electrical resistivity associated with the cellular structure of normal, pre-cancerous and cancerous tissue, which based on its applicability to other types of neoplasia, substantiates its use as a platform for the rapid, reliable and reproducible detection and diagnosis of disease.


Rob Atkinson, Sales Director for DP Medical Systems, the distributor for ZedScan in Great Britain, said: “CMFT is a centre of excellence in the field of gynaecology, so we’re delighted that they felt it was important to include ZedScan as part of the Trust’s service.


“With ZedScan’s better clinical outcomes and economic benefits, we are working with other NHS Trusts throughout the country to adopt ZedScan in to their cervical cancer care pathway.”
