The tiny micro ScoutCam™ camera size enables a maximum working channel for GI diagnostic and therapeutic devices. This micro technology can be customized for procedures utilizing endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) devices, laparoscopes, multi-firing staplers, double-balloon endoscopes, as well as robot-assisted surgical devices. High-definition direct visualization is also important for cleansing the working channel — the technology can be integrated into direct-suction and evacuation devices that remove gelatinous materials and fluids during GI procedures.
Common upper GI procedures can include anti-reflux treatment and GI-bleed diagnosis and management. Lower GI applications can also include GI-bleed management as well as colonic decompression, extreme visualization challenges due to poor prep or retained residual food. Although capsule endoscopy is useful for GI diagnostics (especially for patients who refuse conventional gastroscopy/colonoscopy), clinicians often need the full flexibility of surgical endoscopes during a procedure. During examination of the GI tract, in such cases there is a need take a biopsy, cauterize a bleeding lesion when encountered, or zoom-in to take a closer look at segments of the lumen on-demand.
Gastroenterology 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:
