Bronchoscopes are typically made of flexible fiber-optic material with light source and camera at end. ScoutCam technology is ideal for customized bronchoscopes for lung endoscopy applications. Diagnostic applications include examination of patient’s airways, bleeding lungs, exploring possibility of lung cancer, chronic cough, and obtaining tissue specimens for biopsy. Surgical procedures can include removal of a foreign object in the airway, laser resection of tumors, lung abscess, stent insertion, percutaneous tracheostomy, and tracheal intubation. There are also novel outpatient procedures utilizing bronchoscopes such as bronchial thermoplasty (BT) such as for adult patients with severe / persistent asthma.
Bronchoscopy equipment providers can benefit from customized solutions that utilize clinically proven miniature cameras with full integration of the latest micro endoscopic camera technology and related components:
