ScopeGuide Adding a New Dimension to Colonoscopy
ScopeGuide is designed to provide a real-time, three-dimensional image of the shape and configuration of the colonoscope during a procedure, and is integrated in the EVIS EXERA III system. The ability to visualize the scope inside the body allows the physician to see loop formations as they occur for expedited loop management. It can also assist with scope insertion and help optimize scope handling, which may shorten procedure times and minimize patient discomfort even during difficult colonoscopies.
By seeing the shape of the entire scope as it moves through the body, ScopeGuide provides additional visual information that is particularly helpful during difficult colonoscopies. The endoscopist can evaluate the extent of looping and get a better sense of which rotational maneuvers will be required to straighten out various loop formations that can occur during colonoscopy.
ScopeGuide dedicated endoscopes, including the high-definition CF-H180DL colonoscope, deliver Olympus' renowned optics along with its proprietary variable stiffness technology for exceptional imaging performance and maneuverability.
