Technology boost for cervical cancer screening in London

Technology boost for cervical cancer screening in London

Cervical screening patients at a leading London NHS Trust will now benefit from an improved service thanks to innovative new scanning equipment.

The new technology – MediScan – is a pioneering capture and archive system for gynaecological examinations which has been installed in the three Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust Hospitals at Royal Free Hospital, Barnet Hospital and Chase Farm Hospital.

MediScan provides clinicians with a secure pathway for recording, storing and encrypting patient gynaecology examinations for analysis and archiving. The still images and video are captured in real-time and stored against the patient record for retrieval anywhere in the hospital.

The system – developed by DP Medical System Ltd – uses a simple to operate user interface, including touch screen technology and a question and answer based approach to data entry. Its digital still or video images are seen as benchmark quality by leading clinicians and have been used for illustration in medical texts.

Owen Pemberton, commercial director at DP Medical Ltd, said: “We are delighted to see Medicscan fully up and running at the Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust. The system provides gynaecology clinicians with a number of key benefits, including increased software security, improved patient experience through image sharing and a better platform for end-users to educate students and other clinical staff on complex colposcopy cases.

“We have developed MediScan with key opinion leaders and clinicians and it has now evolved into the essential workstation for every gynaecology practitioner.”

Owen gears up for charity challenge

Owen gears up for charity Challenge

OWEN Pemberton, commercial director at DP Medical Systems, is getting set to cycle more than 100 miles this month, in a bid to help raise vital funds to train doctors and nurses in Africa. In his latest blog, Owen looks ahead to the challenge:

“Giving back to the community is something that’s very important to us here at DP Medical Systems.

“So, when I was asked by Alan McNulty – director of medical manufacturing firm, Sheffmed – to accompany him for two legs of a 1,200-mile bike ride to raise funds to train doctors and nurses in Africa, it was an opportunity I couldn’t turn down.

“Alan’s cycling the length of the country, from Lands End to John O’Groats, over 10 days in July, visiting ENT departments along the way to raise awareness of the challenge and drive fundraising further.

“I’ll be joining him for two days of the ride, from Taunton to Bristol on Tuesday 19 July, and from Sheffield to Harrogate on Friday 22 July.

“Every penny we raise will go towards providing ENT clinical training for nurses and young doctors in Malawi, Africa, helping to form best practice for care in the country and build effective healthcare services there.

“The cost of a months’ training is around £2,500 per person, and the team are hoping to raise enough to fund two nurses at a cost of £5,000.

“This amount will enable both nurses to undergo the right education and training to allow them to perform ENT procedures.

“It’s an honour to be riding alongside Alan for two legs of his epic journey. I’ve no doubt it’ll be gruelling at times, but by keeping in mind the important cause we’re riding for, it’s sure to be a success.”

All donations will be match funded by Sheffmed.


Showcasing innovation at RCOG 2016

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.”
