About us - what is Clinical Photography?
Clinical Photography is the taking of photographs of patients for the purposes of diagnosis, treatment and review and it is normally requested by a Doctor or Surgeon. The patients parent or guardian signs a consent form and the Clinical Photographer will take the photographs as soon as possible after that. These photographs are then processed and stored securely by the Clinical Photographer. If a printed copy is requested, one is provided for the patients chart. Occasionally Clinical Photography will be repeated at a later date to track the patients progress. Clinical Photography can take place at clinic, on the ward, in the operating theatre, in the Emergency Department or in the photography studio.
