    Informed consent has become an established concept in the medical world, and practitioners and patients need to be able to share information such as details on medical issues and procedures. That means systems must be constructed that can correctly and realistically photograph patients’ problem areas and share information with patients quickly.

    The premium image quality developed over many years as a camera manufacturer is used to clearly and accurately capture problem areas. Even in environments with low lighting, bright images can be taken by incorporating an external strobe into the system. The system can also flexibly respond to changing medical and health care development needs through the use of CCAPI, including wireless image transfer.
