Our Mission is our Vision in talking in and to a wide global network of people wth the same spirit, soul and interest. Healthcare is so important as it is a part of our life.
Life only can be enjoyed as long as possible if we use and utilise the best medical treatment. Since the X-Ray images were invented and developed there was a dramatic change in improvement of technical equipment to display such images. From analog film to digital files and PACS workstations with DICOM equipment and standards to now VNA platforms, AI solutions and zero foot print technologies.
Further doctors have exchanged and learnt from others how diseases could be understood in a better way and how medical treatment could be more efficient than before. Cancer is a crucial part of our life and will remain. We cannot avoid this but could work on earlier detection to remove it.
In the past people had to die when lunge or breast or prostate cancer was diagnosed but nowadays using the new technology in the correct way and treat and screen the patient in early stages this could extend or fix the health issues to longer our life. And this is our goal with the Supporter(s)Vision.
But here the deterioration of the equipment and importance of Quality Control and Quality Assurance need to be correct understood. In special image diagnostic devices improved dramatically from CRT to LCD technology. As both technologies have a different characteristic the understanding should be different to. To check medical grade monitors there are special test patterns / phantoms needed to clarify all visibility on the display. Here are some examples based on the AAPM TG18 test patterns developed in the 90s.
AAPM TG18 has started in the 90s to work on Test patterns for monitors as pioneer in early stages. Several workgroups take care of several studies. From their hard work and expertise the whole world benefit from.
That time the monitor technology was CRT based now we have wide spread LCD technology with sometimes a different screen format wide instead of square so adjustment may be required to secure the quality check in the future for accurate image diagostics.
Unfortunately not everybody on our world has the chance to get access to such equipment and expertise and this we consider it as unfair and would like to share this with our messages to reach a fair and same global healthcare improvement to give all lives a chance to live and survive. Not only the ones who pay for this an extra fee. There should be no first, second, third and no class selection.
There are various guidelines for image diagnostic devices already available but unfortunately not unified and with different parameters in each country. This is sometimes driven by the industry or controlled by the governments with several different interests. So as long as such interests are commercially involved a unify global standard is hard to get achieved.
The Supporter(s)Vision Team is therefore free from company interests and display such Vision forward as experts and educational scientific material and information. We show the general technology and possible efficient usage but also show the limitations.
Everything in our life has two sides a positive and a negative one. We will highlight both aspects. Often we say “Its all about money, true or and not” – it is about understanding the values where money play an important role in developing healthcare environment. But it is true it is a challenge to provide the whole world an acceptable accurate healthcare by considering the available infrastructures.
The Team welcome all people with the same spirit to be part of our team or to deliver us important stories which we plan to share with others on our platform.
