Fujifilm officially presented their new ELUXEO endoscopic system at the 24th United European Gastroenterology Week that was held last week in Vienna, Austria. ELUXEO is an innovative endoscopic system that it is equipped with 4-LED Multi Light Technology, a proprietary Fujifilm capability. This technology utilizes four individual LED light bulbs housed in an integrated light source that produces and combines different wavelengths of light, enabling endoscopists to easily switch between three imaging light modes: White Light Mode, Blue Light Imaging (BLI), and Linked Color Imaging (LCI). Each light mode utilizes a unique light spectrum to improve the visualization of specific structures in the gastrointestinal tract.
ELUXEO’s BLI uses blue light, which has a shorter wavelength than white light and is better absorbed by hemoglobin. This increased absorption by hemoglobin makes it easier for endoscopists to detect blood vessels and differentiate between tissue layers without having to use a real-time filter like with traditional endoscopes. Real-time filters tend to make images appear darker and of poorer quality.
Professor Alessandro Repici, Director of the Endoscopy Unit at the Humanitas Research Hospital in Milan, Italy, was one of the first users of the ELUXEO’s BLI and reports, “…it facilitates the identification of lesions, inflammations and early stages of colorectal cancers, makes diagnosis easier and more precise and thus contributes to improve patient outcomes.”
Additionally, ELUXEO offers cutting-edge 135x Multi Zoom technology to optimally magnify structures and further aide in diagnosis and treatment planning. ELUXEO also comes equipped with a Flexibility Adjuster and has a smaller bending radius to enhance maneuverability and maximize patient comfort. Through optimizing image quality and visualization, Fujifilm’s ELUXEO aims to transcend traditional endoscopic systems and achieve superior diagnostic and therapeutic results.
