DEC™ HD Duodenoscope
Featuring the Sterile Disposable Elevator Cap
The DEC™ HD Duodenoscope (ED34-i10T2) is the newest addition to the PENTAX Medical i10 Series of endoscopes as an advanced, hygienic endoscopic solution that maintains the imaging performance you need.
Featuring a sterile, single-use distal-end cap with an integrated disposable elevator, the DEC™ simply and safely disposes the most bacteria-vulnerable component within the device, reducing the risk of cross-contamination.
Reduce Burden of Time-Intensive Reprocessing
Designed for cost-effectiveness, the DEC™ HD Duodenoscope avoids disposing an entire duodenoscope after every procedure and discards only the mechanisms most likely to harbor bacteria, delivering up to 35% reduction in distal-end reprocessing steps*.
Confidently Diagnose in High Definition
The DEC™ HD Duodenoscope maintains the enhanced imaging needed for detailed visualization of the papilla during technically demanding, high-risk ERCP. With a High-Definition CCD combined with i-SCAN and Optical Enhancement (OE)**, it is possible to clearly visualize the mucosa in detail and locate the papilla for cannulation.
Transform Your ERCP Experience
A lightweight and ergonomic control body delivers increased maneuverability to improve cannulation, control, and positioning of devices, ensuring optimal performance for every procedure.

**i-SCAN is available with the EPK-i5010 and EPK-i7010 video processor. OE is available with the EPK-i7010 video processor. i-SCAN and OE image enhancement technologies are intended to be used as an optional adjunct following traditional white light endoscopy and is not intended to replace histopathological sampling. i-SCAN and OE are compatible with PENTAX Medical HD duodenoscopes.
