Easy to understand and full of practical tips, the book explains how today’s technology makes it possible for anyone to take smartphone photos that will speed up diagnoses, improve care, and save time and money.
Where medical photography was once a very specialist area of healthcare, ordinary people now have the tools not only to take high quality photos but also to share them across the world in seconds. “iPhone Medical Photography” encourages both patients and doctors to use this new technology in a wide range of different scenarios.
Readers will learn how to go beyond point and shoot, so they can capture exactly what doctors need to see. With the resulting images, patients can get answers faster and cut down on the need for trips to the doctor. There are valuable insights for medical professionals, who can use iPhone photography to reach more patients, improve diagnoses, connect teams together, and access specialist expertise more quickly. In addition, emergency responders will also find the information extremely useful in helping them liaise effectively with hospital teams and get trauma victims the right care faster.
Author Dr Zameel Panthakkalakath is a healthcare entrepreneur passionate about the need to improve healthcare delivery systems around the world.
“I wrote iPhone Medical Photography in response to the urgent need for innovation in healthcare delivery,” he says. “Currently, we’re seeing ever-increasing spending on healthcare but ever-poorer value for money. It’s vital to find ways to improve care and make resources go further, and smartphones and smartphone cameras have a huge role to play. We now have the technology to share images and information instantly with almost anyone, anywhere. If we use this well, then both patients and doctors will see huge benefits.”
The book includes sections on using iPhone photography for both remote and face-to-face consultations; on the medically approved way to pose patients for different types of shots, and what to consider when storing and sending medical photos.
