Medical Photography

Medical Photography plays a crucial role in visually documenting patient conditions and medical procedures through photography and other imaging techniques. This specialised team collaborates closely with healthcare professionals to capture high-quality images that serve both clinical and educational purposes.

Medical photographers are skilled in using advanced cameras and lighting equipment to ensure accurate and detailed documentation of everything from surgical procedures and patient injuries to dermatological conditions and medical research findings. 

The department works in strict adherence to patient confidentiality and privacy regulations, ensuring that all images are securely stored and only accessible to authorised healthcare professionals involved in patient care. They often work in operating rooms, clinics, and specialised imaging studios within the hospital, adapting their techniques to the specific needs of each medical discipline.

Their work extends beyond just capturing images; they are integral members of the healthcare team, providing expertise in image management, enhancement, and interpretation. Their contributions aid in accurate diagnosis, treatment planning, and monitoring of patient progress over time.
