Olympus is releasing a highly maneuverable HD bronchoscope that can both bend and rotate around its axis. The BF-190 is FDA 510(k) cleared and is now being made available in the U.S.
The BF-190 bronchoscopes are powered by Olympus’ new EVIS EXERA III Universal Platform, the only HDTV Imaging system that helps facilitate more accurate bronchoscopic diagnosis and treatment, simplify setup and reprocessing, and improve versatility. The HDTV image, along with other enhanced features from the EVIS EXERA III processor and light source, will provide a clear and detailed endoscopic image that allows for more precise observation.
The EVIS EXERA III system works seamlessly with a wide range of endoscopes across specialties to provide easier data management and cost efficiencies. The system is compatible with all Olympus endoscopes used in bronchoscopy, endo-bronchial ultrasound (EBUS), gastroenterology, laparoscopic and arthroscopic surgery, urology, anesthesiology and ENT. The flexibility of this widespread platform helps facilities reduce their need for multiple video systems, thereby improving asset management by meeting the needs for endoscopic observation and minimally invasive surgery throughout the hospital.
