Highly sophisticated video lab capable of taking real-time pictures of the urinary tract and bladder; also provides immediate biofeedback
Lab has advanced equipment for studying urinary bladder dynamics; essential for managing children with urological anomalies and diseases
This system is essential for treatment and diagnosis of urological conditions in children at an early stage; can be used to diagnose gastrointestinal diseases as well: Satyendar Jain
In a significant overhaul of the health infrastructure in Delhi, the Kejriwal Government has installed a state of the art Urodynamics lab, the first of its kind in any Delhi Government hospital. Health Minister Shri Satyendar Jain while inaugurating this system at Delhi’s Lok Nayak Jai Prakash Hospital stated – We have installed a urodynamic video system at the hospital which is an essential machine used for diagnosing and treating urological conditions in children up to 12 years of age. This will help the doctors in detecting the conditions at an early stage in children which can prevent serious complications later in life. The system can be used to diagnose and treat other gastrointestinal diseases as well.
Shri Satyendar Jain visited Lok Nayak Jai Prakash Hospital on Wednesday for the inauguration of the Video-Urodynamic System, a machinery required for doctors to perform urodynamic testing with precision. This system has advanced equipment for studying urinary bladder dynamics and is essential for managing children with urological anomalies and diseases. This equipment will essentially cater to children with urological conditions which can lead to serious complications if left untreated or detected at a later stage. Urological anomalies take up a major share of the volume of pediatric surgical cases. Hence, this system helps in the early detection of any such diseases, and in doing so can even prevent the need for renal transplants. This modern lab is also capable of taking real-time images of the abnormal physiology related to these conditions which are otherwise not possible with ordinary urodynamic machines and will improve diagnostic accuracy immensely. Health Minister Shri Satyendar Jain said, “Diagnosis & treatment of such diseases at an early stage not only saves a patient’s money but also increases the chances of saving their life. On the other hand, if diagnosed late, it leads to many serious health conditions & the treatment becomes even more expensive.”
Apart from urological conditions, this versatile, mufti-faceted system can also be used to treat and diagnose gastrointestinal diseases such as measuring pressures of anal canal and oesophagus. It is also useful for therapy and performing biofeedback crucial for improving urinary and faecal control in affected children.
Since there are only a few centres in the country which have such equipment, common people will greatly benefit from this addition. This advanced equipment will prove to be a boon for people & the Neurology department as well, by enabling detection of neurological diseases at an early stage and using the same for research henceforth.
