High-Definition PENTAX Endoscope Improves Small Bowel Examination
An expert in high-definition endoscopy, PENTAX UK, has developed an enteroscope with an unrivalled HD+ resolution for detailed visualisation of the small intestine. Class-leading detection, demarcation and characterisation of the small bowel are now possible with the VSB-2990i enteroscope, which can vastly improve the visibility of minute lesions.
VSB-2990i enteroscope offers unparalleled visualisation and handling
The VSB-2990i enteroscope can be applied to push and balloon-guided enteroscopy and is compatible with NaviAidTM BGE balloon disposables. The 2.8mm instrument channel offers compatibility with a wide range of instruments and enables biopsies and options for further therapeutic interventions. With its 90i control body, the VSB-2990i enteroscope has excellent handling characteristics and exceptional reach, combining unique graduated flexibility with a working length of 2200mm. The unique HD+ resolution imaging can be further combined with the PENTAX i-scan image processing technology to further support detection and characterisation of tissue abnormalities. For example, recent research has demonstrated that with i-scan clinicians can experience an increase in overall polyp and adenoma detection rates1.
“Here at PENTAX we like to challenge the limits of medical technology. Although historically the small bowel has been a very difficult area to examine, we have designed the VSB-2990i enteroscope to provide unparalleled HD+ imaging, alongside exceptional reach, to take the detection and characterisation of tissues abnormalities of the small intestine to another diagnostic level.” said David Moore, Managing Director, PENTAX UK Ltd.
