Integrated illumination allows for high-quality imagining while maintaining small diameter from 1mm in single-use and multi-use micro cameras
Flexible bronchoscopes are usually the device of choice for lung endoscopy for examining and treating airways and taking biopsies, including tangential biopsies. Especially suitable for high-performance, specialized visualization devices help with smooth positioning of forceps to the target biopsy site.
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.
Tailored micro-visualization solutions for procedures requiring bronchoscopy are based on flexible “building blocks” consisting of the core in-house technology and complementary components:
