Product News Feb 14, 2012
PENTAX Life Care has introduced the world’s first HD (high definition) video bronchoscope. The newest addition to PENTAX Life Care’s well established range of high definition HD+ endoscopes, the EB-1990i HD+ Bronchoscope sets a new standard for state-of-the-art bronchoscopy and provides incomparable image quality in pulmonology.
The new EB-1990i HD+ Bronchoscope is the first high definition bronchoscope with a megapixel CCD that presents clear high resolution images with highly accurate, natural colour reproduction. This provides users with excellent image quality in combination with leading ergonomics for better orientation and detection. Incorporated with PENTAX’s industry leading HD+ processors, the EB-1990i helps physicians clearly visualise the bronchial airways for increased clinical confidence in their diagnosis.
Delivering significant improvements in image resolution over standard systems, the EB-1990i can, for example, provide clear enhancement of anatomical details of the bronchial mucosa, such as longitudinal elastic bands, mucosal glands and vascularity. In addition, the advanced ergonomics and flexibility of the lightweight scope ensure excellent manoeuvrability, insertion control, and comfort. A fully operational instrument channel also enables the use of small biopsy forceps for an adequate tissue diagnosis.
"Instilling greater clinical confidence by delivering high performance, reliability and value to our customers is at the core of everything we do," said David Moore, Managing Director, PENTAX UK Ltd. "Bronchoscopy has proved to be an important and indispensable diagnostic tool in pulmonology and PENTAX took giant strides to offer the technological advances in the field of bronchoscopy to our customers and the patients they care for."
