PENTAX Medical i-scan image processing provides digital image enhanced endoscopy (IEE). i-scan provides real-time virtual chromoendoscopy1 for a detailed view of mucosal and vascular patterns with three different enhancement options that highlight specific anatomical features. This range of enhanced visualization modes can support early detection of disease lesions. Together with PENTAX Medical’s advanced HD endoscopes, i-scan has been proven to increase adenoma detection rates to help physicians meet quality measurement standards.1,2
