PENTAX is releasing in the U.S. and Canada its i10 Series HD+ line of endoscopes. The devices provide a high-definition look into the colon and upper GI tract with an “Effective Field of View” of 140 degrees. There’s also a macro-like feature that lets you bring the lens as close as 2mm to the intestine wall to carefully inspect suspect lesions.
The device has a wider 3.2 mm instrument channel compared to its predecessors and features a forward jet-spray coupled with improved suction. The controls have been redesigned and the operating handle made lighter to reduce physician fatigue.
When combined with the company’s proprietary PENTAX i-SCAN™ digital, post-processing image enhancement technology, the PENTAX Medical Premium GI Endoscope Systems provide an unprecedented enhanced view of the texture of the mucosal surface and blood vessels.
“Our newest series of endoscopes represent the most advanced technology the industry has to offer the endoscopist,” said David Woods, President of PENTAX Medical, Americas. “With these and other solutions, PENTAX Medical continues to focus on delivering technology and services that can help clinicians and hospitals provide better patient care with the highest quality and clinical and economic value.”
