The year started off with a special IR imaging session at Tampere University Hospital. Based on on-going researches and clinical use of our system in Tampere and Oulu University Hospitals, two excellent presentations were given. With our active participants we also alluded to the potential and advantages of thermal imaging in vascular patient and diabetes patient care.
Later in January, it was time to head to Helsinki again for the National Wound Days. The event was a great opportunity to meet wound treatment professionals in Finland. The sessions provided valuable insights to the versatility of IR imaging. With various doctors and other medical professionals we also discusses its usability beyond diabetes which furthermore could create savings in medical resources.
Right now we should be sharing stories from MediWeek Imaging Convention in Birmingham and James Mercer’s lecture at Tampere University Hospital. But as it is with everyone, we have also had to twist our plans a bit. Mediweek has been postponed to November and James Mercer’s lecture for after the corona pandemic.
While waiting for the new time, we recommend to take a look at professor emeritus Mercer’s publications! His emphasis has lately been on thermal physiology in humans especially related to the regulation and control of skin blood perfusion in cold temperature physiology and in surgical interventions. IR Thermography has played a key role in this research for 20 years.
Even though events are postponed and the everyday life on hold, development is not. A number of interesting research projects are proceeding further revealing the potential of IR-imaging. Another thermal imaging session with Tampere University Hospital and Oulu University Hospitals will also be arranged in May. This time in Oulu. What’s more, we have already had promising results of test usage and received valuable feedback in Germany. Our product will be tested at another German diabetes clinic as soon as the peak of the pandemic is behind us.
In addition to positive development in DACH, we will also have other international news to share soon.
