On 8th May, Graina's Latvian office, in cooperation with the Latvian Association of Gastroenterology and Endoscopy Specialists, held a seminar to present the latest developments in this field. Professor Schoon from the Netherlands participated in the event as a guest.
“Perform fewer biopsies,” the professor recommended as he shared his experience. During the seminar, much was said about the especially important role played by endoscopic examinations. Latvian doctors were encouraged to keep an eye on the latest trends in diagnosis and technology.
Fujifilm is the main partner providing new LED imaging technology, which uses different lighting observation modes. LCI (Linked ColourImaging) and BLI (Blue Light Imaging) allow examinations to be performed more easily and more precisely.
Dr Ilona Vilkoite presented a new artificial intelligence platform, which recognisesendoscopic images and can mark polyps or other suspicious structures.
“I am glad to see that Latvian endoscopistsare becoming more active and are looking for new technological solutions,” said the professor. It is important that doctors work every day with the best diagnostic methods, and that Graina Latvia closely cooperate with manufacturers, to offer the best solutions to clients. Fujifilm is the leader in endoscopic technology, providing not only excellent diagnostic devices, but also specialised trainings. It is the start of cooperation with the Latvian Association of Gastroenterology and Endoscopy Specialists and the country's endoscopists, seeking to establish a platform for cooperation among the manufacturers of technology, their representatives and the users of the technology.
